Via Atenea

Via Atenea takes you past the Palazzo Celauro, where Goethe stayed during his journey (and the main façade of which overlooks the street of the same name). It leads into Piazza del Purgatorio, home to the 18C church, Chiesa di San Lorenzo, whose ochre tufa forms a pretty contrast with the white portal with twisted columns. Further along, on the left, you will notice the neo-Gothic style chamber of commerce (1851).
