Via San Lorenzo Viterbo
History and description
The Via San Lorenzo is one of the main medieval streets of Viterbo. By connecting the Piazza San Lorenzo and the Piazza del Plebiscito it also connects the religious and civic centers of the city.
The most striking building on Via San Lorenzo is the Palazzo Farnese. Other interesting buildings are the Torre di Borgognone and the 15th century Palazzo Chigi.
A little further on you can see an arch, which used to lead to the former hospital.
As one approaches the Piazza del Duomo (as the Piazza San Lorenzo is also often called), one sees large boulders on both sides of the street. These are parts of the ancient Etruscan and Roman city walls.
