  • It is the center of the city's life, just as it was already since the 1st century as a merchant square with its shops, which were preserved until Mussolini decided to raise it to discover the amphitheatre, which by chance, The Banca di Roma discovered by making reforms early 20. It is currently a square of many contrasts. Only the Orthodox Chapel of San Marco remains, which features a beautiful portico decorated with an allegorical frieze. Also the Sedile, a palace of the s.XVI that is currently an exhibition gallery, in which Gothic and Renaissance elements are combined. The most bright thing is without a doubt, the Roman amphitheatre of the S.I. There is also from this time the ancient Roman column of Brindisi that marked the end of Via Appia, on which there is a bronze statue of the patron saint Oronzo blessing, now in works (August 2019). And next to it, the Church of Santa Maria de la Gracia, along with cafes and restaurants to enjoy during the night.
