Foto Empoli: Saint Andrew Collegiate
The Collegiata is the town symbol and is depicted in the civic coat of arms. It is a Tuscan Romanesque masterpiece: the front is striped in green and white, is covered with Carrara marbles and is spanned by blind arches, separated by pilasters, with the main architraveted portal set in the central arch.
Pampaloni's Fountain

The fountain - located in Farinata degli Uberti Square – is colloquially known as Lion's square, because the base-fountain has four lions, on the edge, lying down. The upper part of the structure features four nymphs holding the basin. The fountain's name refers to the Neoclassical sculptor who made it in the 1827.
