PIAZZA DEL PLEBISCITO
Located in the heart of the city, Piazza del Plebiscito stands out for its semi-circular shape, the result of works carried out during the French decade by the architect Leopoldo Laperuta, aimed at creating a majestic parade ground for military parades. Important buildings look out onto the impressive square, including the Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale), the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, the Palace of the Prefecture (Palazzo della Prefettura) and Palazzo Salerno. It is 350 m from the Santa Brigida Guest House.
