Angels quarter (degli Angeli)

This quarter with its typically medieval streets runs to the immediate East of piazza Garibaldi. Saint Dominic's church has a beautiful curved façade and accommodates a Madonna of the Rosary wood painting by Paladini. Further along, on Via degli Angeli, you will notice, situated on a rock, the ruins of the Saracen castle of Pietrarossa and those of Saint-Mary-of the-Angles Church beneath them (13C), which includes a beautiful portal (difficult to see though).
