Fiera di Piazza

The “Fiera di Piazza” is held every last Sunday of the month, in the former SIACE in Contrada Bellia, on the northern outskirts of the town of Piazza Armerina. It is the oldest animal market in Sicily, and testifies through its continuity, to the ancient market that has taken place since the 12th century. Today the Fiera di Piazza is held near the church of Madonna della Noce, which was dedicated to another market, which took place there in early September five centuries ago. Visit the Fiera di Piazza, from 6 am to Noon, and witness the buying and selling of horses, dogs, birds, pigs or ferrets and everything to do with the world of animals. The evocative negotiation phase of the purchase of horses, takes place in a specially arranged “square”. On the sidelines of the fair, you can find kiosks and stalls selling local food products, agricultural implements and livestock. Each buyer also has a small chicken received from veterinarians, before leaving the fair, relative to the animal health certification purchased. The entrance fee for visitors is 2 Euros, while for children under 14 and seniors is free. To reach the exhibition center take SS 117 / bis and exit at Aidone or the Piazza Armerina Nord.
