This place has really touched my heart. The piazza outside and the buildings and the column in the centre are very beautiful and special, almost magical, in the night and impressive in the day. Watch out for cars, crossing piazza from different directions, though.

I often walk here just to gaze up and take in the view. Ok it is not as grand as anything in Rome, but still worth a visit when in Brindisi. Make sure you seek it out when you go.
