A very beautiful, picturesque place with this wonderful, very well-preserved laundry. To compensate for the lack of water in homes, this 19th century sink was built for shared use for washing clothes. So, in addition to its original function, it was a place of exchange and meetings. The atmosphere evokes old customs, t is a little gem that exudes a very evocative charm from the past. Today it is a very peaceful, shady place, perfect for a stopover. It is located on via Lupo.

This area had been upgraded from when I visited some years ago. It gives an idea of how small the people must have been.

A medieval roofed over washing bassin where the women used to wash their clothes. It still has an atmospheric feeling around it. You can easily imagine the women washing (and meanwhile gossiping) there in days gone by. It's right in the middle of the historic centre , close to Piazza Vecchia, yet somehow easily overseen by most tourists.

wouldn't go out of my way to visit it but whilst wandering the streets you will happen across it. Seating nearby for a short rest.
