Via Atenea

Via Atenea takes you past the Celauro palace (whose main facade overlooks the street of the same name) where Goethe stayed during his journey. It leads into Piazza del Purgatoria, home to the18C San Lorenzo Church, whose ochre tufa contrasts prettily with the white torsaded portal. Further on stands a 14C chiaramountain convent, whose portal is flanked by gemeled windows.
