La Piazza della Cisterna





How the town centre fits together.  The Main drag from Porta San Giovanni is Via San Giovanni, and it goes from the bottom left of the photo to the main Piazza, La Piazza della Cisterna, which is located half way up the right half of the photo.  The Collegiate Church (aka Duomo) is in the upper centre of the photo.

The Piazza del Duomo
