Fish market

Coming from the Corso, on the left side of Piazza Cavour is the entrance to the old fish market; one of the most picturesque and characteristic places in the city.

The work of Rimini architect Giovan Francesco Buonamici, it was erected in 1747. It presents itself as a two-tiered loggia opened by three round arches; at the corners are four statuettes of dolphins with gushing water (the fountains for cleaning fish). Inside, long Istrian stone stalls where women sold poveracce (clams).

Today this area together with the adjacent Piazzetta San Gregorio has become the center of young people's evening life, with clubs, cantinas and meeting points, especially on Friday nights.
