Pocket Guide: Porto Antico Torre degli Embriaci Hotels

Genoa’s Torre Degli Embriaci

Twelfth-century Torre Degli Embriaci is in Genoa’s old quarter, next to Santa Maria di Castello church and the Palazzo Brignole-Sale. When it was built, Torre Degli Embriaci was Genoa’s only tower to have avoided a 1296 which stopped aristocratic families from erecting ridiculously tall towers.

Still in incredible condition, the Torre Degli Embriaci was lovingly restored in 1923, replacing the tower’s uppermost stones with tiles. The tower is now a private home and is not open to the public, but you are welcome to wander past it and admire it from outside.

History of the Embriaci Family

Hailing from Genoa, members of the powerful Embriaci family played important roles in the Crusades in the Holy Land in the 11th and 12th centuries, taking part in the capture of Jerusalem, Arsuf, and Gibilet, north of Beirut. The tower was built in memory of Guilgielmo Embriaci, otherwise known as Hammerhead, the hero of the First Crusade.

The mayor at the time allowed the Embriaci family to build Torre Degli Embriaci 80 hands over Genoa’s regulated height in honour of Guilgielmo’s glorious deeds.
