An amazing sculptural ensemble is the municipal palace. With construction beginning in the 15th century, the current image is the result of several improvements, including the addition of the hundreds of statues that cover all the exterior walls.

It is necessary to read to confirm that the strange aspect of the tower of the Church of Saint Peter is due to the fact that it was never finished. The church began to be built in the 15th century, but due to the instability of the ground, it was stopped. This did not prevent UNESCO from classifying it as a World Heritage Site.
