Very Beautiful Historic Square

Rimini provides many interesting places to enjoy and among them is certainly the Three Martyrs Square (Piazza Tre Martiri). This is supported by his rich history. It is one of the two most important squares in the city, the second is Piazza Cavour. The Piazza Tre Martiri is located in the former Roman Forum, where Julius Cesar gave a famous speech to his legions when he crossed the Rubicon River ( To commemorate this act set small and seemingly inconspicuous Pole or Column of Julius Caesar (La Colonna di Giulio Cesare). The history of the square dates back to 200 years BC. In the middle ages the area was known as "piazza delle Erbe" and was the site of the market, as well as knightly tournaments. Throughout its history, the square has changed several names, including named area of Julius Caesar. Named "Tre Martiri", which translated from Italian means Three of the Martyr, the area received only after the Second world war, as a reminder of the murder of three young partisans who were executed in this square on August 16, 1944 (Mario Cappelli, Luigi Nicolò, Adelio Pagliarani). On the Square today dominates the Clock Tower. It was built in 16th century. And around it was later incorporated the 17th century Brioli Palace (Palazzo Brioli). A little further on the square is the small octagonal chapel of Sant'Antonio (Tempietto di Sant'Antonio), built in the 16th century, and after the earthquake of 1672, rebuilt in the Baroque style. The chapel adjoins the Church of San Francesco dei Paoletti or St. Francis of Paolo (Chiesa Dei Paolotti), and which further emphasize the Sanctuary of Sant'Antonio. Together, the chapel and the Church form a single ensemble and harmoniously fit into the overall picture Piazza Tre Martiri. On the North side of the square is the bronze monument of the Roman General and politicians of Julius Caesar (Statua di Giulio Cesare). As we said earlier this is an extremely interesting square. We did not forget to enjoy gastronomy at the surrounding restaurants and bars. So we visited Antica Caffetteria's Restaurant-Bar. We were extremely pleased with the atmosphere and service. Nice experience.

Heart of the city

This square is in the heart of the historic centre of Rimini. Explore the buildings, such as the clock tower, the statue of Julius Caesar, and the spot where Julius Caesar gave his speech after crossing the Rubicon.

THE THREE MARTYRS
Mar 2019 • Couples
This Piazza, long a center of the city, is currently named for 3 resistance fighters who were hanged here on August 16, 1944 in what was then Piazza Giulio Cesare. 2 plaques commemorate this event. One is on the corner of the Piazza and Via IV Novembre and the other is in the paving stone where the gallows stood. In Roman times, this square was the forum for Ariminum from 268BC. There are a wide variety of shops and restaurants around the Piazza. A great place to people watch.

Sitting in a classic cafe overlooking the piazza soaking up the ambience is a nice thing to do in the early evening , especially sipping an aperol spritz with some complimentary nibbles.

The heart of Rimini.
Jul 2018 • Couples
Right in the heart of Rimini, the Piazza Tre Martiri (Three Martyrs Square) was built in the area of the ancient Roman Forum.
On the square are the Clock Tower and the octagonal temple of S. Antonio.
The area suffered serious damage during the Second World War and was largely rebuilt.
For centuries, the square was the 'piazza delle erbe' (the arcades reveal its age-old function), then became Piazza Tre Martiri, in memory of three young partisans who here they were executed.
When you are in central Rimini, the square is definitely worh a visit and will probably be hard to be missed.
