    The Archbishop's Palace is right in piazza Grande, opposite the Cathedral and is certainly commendable especially for context. The stand out above all the arches because the rest from the idea of a certain simplicity. In the evening has an extra charm.

    Great place to get a meal, or drink and relax, away from all the crowds in Old Town and Plaza Grande. Very colonial feel with courtyard and quaint restaurants.  more »
