Via della Gatta
Crouching high up on a cornice, at the rear of Palazzo Grazioli, is a small stone cat. The feline is thought to come from an ancient temple to the Egyptian goddess Isis, which once stood nearby.
It is said that treasure is hidden at the spot where the cat (some think it is more probably a monkey) is staring!
