According to history and tradition the structure of Piazza Mercato, and its geometrical central position, still today constitutes the symbolic centre of the residential zone.
The entire area has recently been refurbished, and now represents a multi-functional centre to which different businesses belong, the indoor fish and food market, the Snaporaz theatre, shops, offices and medical clinics which all look onto a large, imposing, rectangular square.
Piazza Mercato represents the commercial heart of the town of Cattolica, maintaining the historical traditions of the market, where the customers have rediscovered the pleasures of buying, by re-establishing a relationship and a feeling of trust between the shop owner and customer.
Entering the square is even easier today: escalators and lifts guarantee free access to all areas ensuring an efficient and functional service to its citizens.
A large underground car park, free, to all customers using the indoor market, allows you to arrive by car, right in the centre of Cattolica, where you will be free to enjoy your leisure time in an atmosphere that takes you into a more human dimension.
Piazza Mercato has become in the last few years a rich green garden like area full of seating, while becoming both a meeting and socializing point.
Besides the opportunity of enjoying the city on foot, as well as the shopping, Piazza Mercato gets ready to party too, by becoming the background to the many shows and the various events that during the lovely summer season render Cattolica a lively town.
Piazza Mercato is proud to be the home of the Snaporaz theatre, an elegant auditorium which during the year hosts theatrical, cinematographic and musical performances of every kind and genre. The Cattolica town choir, the Swinger Big Band, and many other entertainments await you in Piazza Mercato for unforgettable nights under the starry skies of the Adriatic!
