Piazza San Carlo was designed by Carlo di Castellamonte in 1642 and completed in 1650. In the middle of the piazza you’ll find the equestrian statue of Emanuele Filiberto (known to all as “El Caval èd brons”), sculpted by Carlo Marocchetti in 1838. The porticoed buildings surrounding the piazza give space to numerous bars, cafes, and restaurants.

Piazza San Carlo has been made car-free. This allows to admire its beauty without having to pay attention to cars, busses, etc.

The nerve center of this vibrant city is Piazza San Carlo, where you can also find Tourist Information nearby. The sheer expanse is breath-taking and when tired of exploring the city, there are some benches to sit down and watch people.
