We only came to look at this as it is the police station used in Montalbano. It was a pleasant enough building but unimpressive compared to the thousands of historic buildings in Italy. Only for fans.

Ok, ok, it's touristy, but it was cool to see the place. If you're into it there are tours of the locations from the show. There' even a self-guided tour.

Featured in a popular Italian TV show about a detective. In a compact town square which is very busy at night and on weekends.
