Mercato di Rialto – Photostory

Mercato di Rialto, Venezia, Benátky

Although the heart of Venice is undoubtedly St. Mark’s Square, for over a millenium the business center has been Rialto. The name was derived from the river high bank – Rivo altus. In addition to the most beautiful bridge of Renaissance Italy, Mercato di Rialto is also the main city market. It was divided according to the type of goods which were sold here: Beccaria – for meats, Caseria – for cheese, Drapperia – for fabric and silk, Erbaria – for vegetables and Pescheria for fish.
