La Pescheria Vecchia
designed by Francesco Buonamici, demonstrates the economic importance of the fishing industry in 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.
