This is a beautiful palazzo and a lovely square that is used by the locals, as well as by buskers. Nice to sit in a bar/cafe and enjoy the view of the palazzo.

The local market assembles in the piazza on Thursday and Saturdays. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetable. Meat and cheese trucks and flea market finds. We didn't go inside but the outside architecture was nice but nothing spectacular.
