"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.
