Loggia was built in the XVI century at the request of Cardinal Farnese, later Pope Paul III. It was used in the past as place for exhibition of goods and execution of contracts between merchants. Also as an entrance to the building behind it. Today, it is hard to visit on the top floor but you can see it freely on the ground floor, where you can actually find a good café. This is more the site for you to take a picture than anything else. You can do this from the square. With some luck you will have no cars in front of it... Still, this area is alive, meaning there are people, cars, and cafes... Still, worth to understand the history and take a picture, if you are in Macerata.

Pity about the cars, and not. This is a living city and so cars are inevitable, as was the market in the morning. It does make it difficult to photograph. It is a beautiful structure in the heart of the beautiful little city.

It's a 2 floor loggia, typical italian covered architecture. It used to be a market place, where people sell or exange items. Today you can see it from Piazza della Libertà, in the heart of Macerata. You can access the top floor passing through the Prefettura building but is not so easy. You need special pass or join a group visit (contacting the guide association Macerata by Marche). You have to pass the celebration room in the building that is very beautiful itself, and from a window you can access Loggia dei Mercanti second floor and take a nice pic of the square. At the basement you find a good cafè.

One corner of piazza della Libertà is occupied by this very pretty monument. Once upon a time a cardinal decided to convert it in his vaste bedroom. Fortunately now it's back to the original architecture.
