Alley of the Basilica (in truth the rests roman are of a little temple) is one of the more fascinating places of the ancient Spoleto, rich of spontaneous building solutions, external scales and arches rampanti, all in a fascinating to be chased of lights and shadows. The medieval walls burned from the time rise over the massive rests of the ancient constructions roman and of it they represent the continuity in the time, to testimony that Spoleto is remained important town also in the dark centuries.
