Monuments Arco Angioino

Immagine di Arco Angioino

In "Via delle Crociate" a boundary wall is to be noticed on the west side; walking along it, we will find us in front of an arch, which was erected by the King Charles I of Anjou and therefore known as Angevine arch. The picture of St. Nicholas is sculpted on it. This is one of the St. Nicholas'citadel entrances, as whoever passed through it some centuries ago put himself under the protection of the saint and was granted the privileges of immunity, i.e. the exemption from ecclesiastical and public jurisdictions.
