Palazzo Arcivescovile

Rebuilt in modern times at the back of the Cathedral, in continuity with the most ancient part of those buildings which were to be the dwelling of the bishop Orso (3rd-5th century). In 1896, on a project of Luigi Capanna, the prospects that face the square were as the current ones. Inside the collection of the Archbishop’s Museum and paintings by Girolamo Curti (1570-1631). Through the portico of the entrance, in the “garden of the Archbishop”, one can see the outside of the chapel of “Sant’Andrea” (5th century) decorated inside by marvelous mosaics, and the massive Salustra tower (2nd-3rd century), maybe the remainder of a Roman door and probably “castellum aquae” of the Trajan’s aqueduct.
