This wonderful square is the first thing we saw in Piacenza. It is named after the equestrian statues in the square. Beautiful and wide. We read that it is used for public events throughout the year.

Probably the two bronze equestrian monuments are enough to attract art lovers from distant places. Imposing and baroque they are truly awesome. Palazzo Gotico is also charming. And a meridian cuts the square in two diagonally.

People do not talk about Piasenza as an interesting Italian city and I have to say that it is surprising because it is a beautiful city and Piazza Cavalli is the cherry on the cake. Great atmosphere, fantastic buildings and lovely cafe.

Located in the middle of the historical center and commercial roads. Open and beautiful square with the two statues being the main attraction.

Pelas ruas de Piacenza ainda é possível de ver muita da arquitetura da época, e a praça Cavalli é uma amostra unica. Ande pelas pequenas ruas, no centro para saborear e sentir a vida da pequena cidade. Through the streets of Piacenza it is still...More
