Near the Palace of the Provveditore, without interruption, is the Loggia of the Grand Guard. This housed the guards who defended the square and the Superintendent.
In the 1820’s an additional storey was added to the final part of the Loggia and later turned into a War Memorial. In the first half of the 1800’s, it was the seat of a theatre.
In the big arches you can find the wrought iron gates that were once situated at the town gates.
