The Loggia del Mercato di Noto is the former site of the city’s food market.  Inside 12 rooms, covered by a wrought-iron portico, were set up the stores of butchers and fishmongers. The loggia is located on Via Rocco Pirri, is enclosed by a gate and opens on three sides between ancient noble palaces including Palazzo Nicolaci. The walls are painted in chiaroscuro with beautiful turquoise and sandy yellow hues. In the center of the Loggia’s forecourt, paved with river stones, there is instead a small pool made of white Hyblean stone. After being restored, this space is now used for cultural events. The Loggia del Mercato di Noto is one of the locations used in the Commissario Montalbano series and appears in the episodes A Nest of Vipers and The Pyramid of Mud.
