La Pescheria Vecchia-The old fish market

The old fish market designed by Francesco Buonamici, demonstrates the economic importance of the fishing industry in Rimini
Address: 
Piazza Cavour - Rimini

"La Pescheria Vecchia" whose entrance is on the left-hand side of piazza Cavour is one of the most picturesque and characteristic places in Rimini.
It was erected by Rimini architect Giovan Francesco Buonamici in 1747. It has a loggia with two ordres opening into three round arches. In the four corners there are statues of four small water-jetting dolphins.
Inside there are two rows of counters in Istrian stone.
Here women used to sell fish and the so-called "poveracce" (clams).
Nowadays the area has become the hub of life for the city's youth, full of restaurants, wine bars, canteens and meeting places.

Getting there:
