Sitting astride the gorge that once divided cliff-clinging Sorrento in two, you’ll
find Piazza Tasso, the central living room of the town. Piazza Tasso is where
the locals come to see and be seen, to sit in cafes and bars, or to catch a bus;
it all happens here. During the day it’s a busy traffic hub, but at night the
traffic is limited and the residents take the space back from the cars and buses.
In the main square, once called Largo of the Castle, the Baroque Church del Carmine opens up: in its interior it is kept an interesting painting by Onofrio Avellino.
In the same Piazza Tasso, the Palazzo Correale is located with its magnificent majolica cout dating back to 1772 (the inscription on the portal's marble scroll ornament bears the date 1768 but it is known that as early as the XVth century a house belonging to this family stood here and was later totally transformed by the 17th century reconstruction.
