Terrace/Belvedere

It is the highest point of the route leading the visitor from the street to the palace terrace. A space generally covered by a floor with joists or logs and open on one of its walls for the rest of the terrace. This opening usually takes the form of an arcade with one or more arches resting on marble, tuff stone or simply masonry supports, and is a resting place for women and men at different times of the day.  Facing the sea from which it fully benefits, since urban law required that no one dwelling should interfere with the full view of another dwelling on the sea. As a result, it allows you to enjoy the fresh sea air in summer and a relaxing view of the horizon, providing serenity and tranquility to the eye and mind. This is the true vocation of this space.
