The main axis in Noto is the Vittorio Emanuele street, punctuated by three squares. In each square a church, the course is announced by the Royal Gate, a monumental entrance in the shape of a triumphal arch, erected in the nineteenth century. The door is surmounted by a pelican, symbol of self against King Ferdinand. The two sides are a tower, a symbol of strength and a Cirneco (ancient breed Sicilian), symbol of fidelity. Behind it lies a tree-lined avenue flanked by the beautiful Public Garden characterized by patches of purple bougainvillea and clumps of palms among which emerge marble busts of famous local personalities. And ‘one of the meeting places of the inhabitants.
