Piazza Peculio : Michelin's recommendations
This square is named after a grain store ( peculio frumentario) where the locals could buy wheat for a modest sum. The arch that you will see on the terrace of the belvedere, behind the Pawnbroker's, is believed to have come from what was most likely the Jewish area of Castroreale. As for the Church of Santissimo Salvatore, it still awaits restoration after an earthquake in 1978, which caused a section of its campanile to collapse.
