Alarcon-Mendoza Castle
Foto Rende: Alarcon-Mendoza Castle
The Town Hall is the former Suabian Castle, that had been turned into a stately home by the Alarcon-Mendoza family. The main feature of the castle is represented by the huge battlements.
Palazzo
Foto Rende: Palazzo
The palazzo in the picture is an interesting transition between Liberty architecture (namely with reference to Medieval Revival art expressed by the presence of the tower whose look recalls old castles) and Modernist Art (epitomises by the use of striking repetitive linear geometries).
Rosary Church

Rosary Church has a complex convex-concave facade, decorated with Corinthian capitals, niches, volutes and shells motifs. On the right, is the War Memorial.
