  • A market that smacks of old and history. An explosion of jubilation for its colours, its flavours ranging from the smell of fish to meat, from the Sicilian fruit to vegetables, smells that fill daily life and all ages ... a market that needs to be visited if you pass this sp lendida city.

  • Catania's historic market, where is the best seafood and much more. From fruit to vegetables, olives, cheese, salami and meat. In "vanniata" of typical fish vendors, draws people to buy. Miscelanea of smells, smells and people. An obligatory stop for tourists.

  • Story. Here the locals come to buy fish. Those who sell Vahid qualities. You buy well and you spend it right. Put your wallet in your sock ... are safer.

  • Pleasure for all the senses. Are all varieties of local fish that have a common denominator: the freshness. The cries and the happy confusion are part of local custom. Is the archetype of catanesità!

  • Fresh fish, just come off the steps, if you're coming in from the square, you're mobbed! All who call you and propose the catch ... an ancient craft.

  • "Historical fish market" is an important step for those who want to visit the city and enjoy the features, still poorly modified by modernity. Folk, full of old practices, a ' piscaria is a little bit apparently forgotten by time, but positioned at 100 meters from the main town square, the Duomo square with the Town Hall and the Cathedral. It can be accessed from both the Amenano Fountain (also called "water linzolu") both by the arches of the Navy. You find lots of good fish, fresh and well priced. In the surroundings there are many good pubs/restaurants whose menus are full of fish. Ultra is recommended for photo-video amateurs who want to capture images and glimpses of reality.
