The historic center of Naples is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although the historic Piazza Municipio – City Hall Square – dates back to the Angevins, the Town Hall, Palazzo San Giacomo, was built in the early 19th century.

It was an example of advanced architectural technology at the time, with a glass passageway connecting the square in front with via Toledo in the rear. In the center of the Piazza del Municipio gardens stands a 19th century equestrian statue of Victor Emmanuel II.
