Via Ascenzi Viterbo

The Via Filippo Ascenzi was laid in the 1930s and the pine trees that shade the street were also planted in that period.

The Palazzo delle Poste was built in 1935 by the architect Cesare Bazzani, who was also responsible for the building that houses the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rome.

Walking down the steps near this building to the Piazza della Pescheria, you will reach the ancient Santa Maria della Salute Church, with its beautiful marble gate. The only interesting thing about its interior is the tomb of the notary who had the church built in the Middle Ages.

Although the façade of the Palazzo del Podesta is located in the Piazza del Plebiscito, the entrance is in the Via Ascenzi.
