La Pescheria is the lively fish market of the city of Catania. Easy to find, from the central square Piazza del Duomo, just follow the screams of the fishmongers shouting their best price. Swordfish, tuna and everything else that comes from the sea can be admired on the various market stalls. Crowded, smelly, colorful and noisy – la Pescheria is the place to really get a feel for Sicilian life.
Each fish stall tries to expose the catch of the day in the most appealing way.
Around noon the crowd loosens and shoppers leave the market with their bags full of fresh products. At home there are people waiting for lunch.
