It is situated at the entry to the castle and begins from the place where once flowed the waters of the first moat, detoured by Feltrino Boiardo in the early 15th century. Facing onto the sloping square, with its strong scenic impact, are the two principal monuments of the town: the castle and the parochial church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
