The People's Palace is one of the most important monuments of San Gimignano, being both the home of the Civic Museum and rich in paintings by the Florentine and Sienese schools (dating from the 13th century) such as the "Crucifix", painted by Coppo di Marcovaldo, the triptyches by Niccolò Tegliacci and Taddeo di Bartolo dating from the 14th century, and other important works of art dating from the 15th century painted by Domenico Michelino, Pinturicchio and Filippino Lippi.
In the other rooms of the Palace it is possible to find various frescoes on the walls such as the "Scenes of private life" painted by Memmo di Filippuccio and "The Maestà" painted by Lippo Memmi. On the right hand side of the Palace rises the high "Great Tower" erected in 1300. On the balcony above the entrance the Podestas (persons responsible for the Municipality) took their oaths. In front of the Palace and the Tower, a ballatoio (stairs leading to and from a narrow terrace) called l'Arengo can be admired.
