Grande Square located in the center of the city is a real masterpiece of the architectural art. The design of the square was developed by numerous medieval masters. Once upon a time mass events were conducted on the square, so the square was designed like a spacious amphitheater. The main decoration of the square is the statue of la Bonissima, which was opened in 1468.
