The Barbarossa Walls became Murette

Before the expansion to the sea, the terminal part of the Barbarossa walls cut Piazza Sarzano, touching the church of San Salvatore. Perhaps already in the thirteenth century, or certainly in the sixteenth, the space towards the sea widened. The the new walls faced the cliff that had confined the Campo Pisano prisoners, and the ancient walls became the basis of buildings facing the sea, separated from the church from a narrow alley: delle Murette
