This building, located right across from the lovely Trattoria Gigi, is actually the site of a mercato. You walk through the doors into this very old and spacious building and come upon a little vegetable market, manned by a few women.
The market area has doors opening up to a few shops-a fish market, one selling chicken, a butcher, another specializing in caramelle (candies) and a bar.
Built during the Renaissance, this property started life as a church. It included the clock tower and part of the interior housed a convent. Whenever I walk through here I always feel that the little stands selling vegetables are misplaced in this spacious building.
