The "Capo"

Bordering the Albergheria quarter, Il Capo is another web of interconnected streets and blind alleys. Impoverished like its neighbour, it too has its own street trade, Mercato del Capo running the length of Via Sant'Agostino.
The centrepiece of the quarter is the imposing monastery of Chiesa di Sant'Agostino (Via Sant'Agostino; admission free; 8 am-noon & 4-5.30pm) that ran the region in medieval times.
