Fortress Museum

In 2013 Marciana Fortress in Pisa came back to its ancient splendour: it is possible again to visit it and within the bastions you will find the new Fortress Museum, where you can see copies of weapons from Middle Ages and Renaissance, samples of crockery taken from the findings in the Fortress and important papers and documents.

Furthermore, during the historical commemoration in summertime in Marciana, it is possible to see the Fortress at the height of its ancient magnificence, thanks to the set-ups around it that make the audience feel as if they were in the XV century: the ancient functions are offered under a modern point of view, through a swords’ exhibition and a panoramic walk which takes advantage of the strategic location of the panoramic site.
