Pignasecca has a very local feel with a mixture of small shops and stalls that attract lots of shoppers from early morning through to mid-afternoon. Castel Sant Elmo stands high above and the area is easy walking distance from the ancient quarter.

It is in the core of Naples’ heart. It is a market on open sky. You can find fish shops, pizzerias, historical street food shops and historical bars. Don’t be worried to go and see. It is simply Naples.
