The districts of San Carlo and the Hospital

On the south axis of the Royal Square, in the second half of the seventeenth century palaces with the character of suburban villas, with gardens. As you move away from the square you lose that uniformity sought in the fronts and in the volumes of the blocks. In the San Carlo block, in addition to the church and the convent of the same name, there is the Palazzo Trucchi di Levaldigi del Castellamonte, with the original entrance diagonally on the road; along the district of San Carlo, numerous palaces until you reach the Palazzo Lascaris, with large garden and low buildings on the road. On the continuation of the road to the east, the district of the Hospital meets palaces and convents with gardens, up to the large complex of the hospital San Giovanni, which occupies an entire block near the walls.

In the districts of San Carlo and the Hospital to the south of Piazza Reale, there are noble palaces with gardens (see POI Palazzo Trucchi di Levaldigi, Galleani di Barbaresco, Perrone di San Martino, Morozzo della Rocca and Ospedale San Giovanni).
