Piazza XVI Maggio

This square is dominated by the elegant curving façade of the church of San Domenico by Gagliardi. Its vigorous lines are accentuated by the upswept columns which bring together the two orders separated by a high cornice. In front of the church is the charming pavilion of Hercules with its central fountain opposite the theatre.
