Since the end of 15th century when was built the Loggia under the Republic of Venice , this is the center of the city, many beautiful palaces and monument faces the square, the Loggia dominates it but look around and you will see the clock tower with marvelous sundial gilded and the two automatic bronze statues called the Macc de le uer that ring the bell every hour. Then the monument , called Bella Italia , for the patriots who dead during the ten days of Brescia, just in front this statue you can see the door of Salarolo with beautiful marble decoration, in the same side , towards the Loggia there’s the palace Monti di Pietà with a very nice loggia decorated with Roman elements.

You enter this square through an archway. Look up at the beautiful 16th century clock tower. Look around, and you will see the real Italy of 15th and 16th century buildings. Brescia is not overrun by tourists, not in October at any rate. Go inside the Palace of the Loggia, now the town hall, started in 1493, and look at the murals - it doesn't cost anything, but you will have to surrender your passport for security reasons. Feeling weary? Sit under the enclosed veranda of the restaurant in the opposite corner of the square and have an aperitif, olives and biscuits for 3.50 Euros, and look around you again.

Great place and beautiful architecture! The clock and the City hall palace impressed me the most (when you enter there you have to give your passport or id card to the policewoman).

It's fair to say that Brescia is not high on the list of places to see for visitors to Italy, and perhaps that is as it should be, but if you are ever tired of the tourist crush and wish to see the way traditional Italian city dwellers spend their time then this is perhaps close to a perfect fit. Piazza Loggia, elegant centrepiece to this medium-sized city, is a great place to start, To the east lies the old town, with its two cathedrals, remains of Roman Brixia and fabulous Civic museum (Santa Giulia), to the south is plentiful shopping, while to the north and west is the slightly run-down, colourful, multi-ethnic and slightly dodgy Carmine, full of great places to eat and drink. Well worth a day or two of your holiday to explore, and you may be the only tourists you meet (for now....)

The square is a very beautiful one and for italians it is also the place of a terrible bomb attack with several people dead in the '70ies.

Nice square, built by Venetians taking also advantage of used Roman marble slabs, it hosts the city hall building, the Palazzo della loggia, the ancient pawn shop (monte dei pegni) and a nice astronomical clock, with two metal automas strkingin the hours (nicknamed by the locals "Tone and Batista"). Cafes and gelaterias are present on the square and on Saturday there's a local market.

Nice square! You can visit the loggia (now the town hall) by leaving a document at the entrance. If the mayor in not in, you can visit his office!

We enjoyed sitting in this historic piazza on our recent visit to Brescia. The loggia itself is remarkable and the other buildings also deserve attention.

The piazza is worth a visit. The Loggia's exterior and interior are elegant. It's an important structure for its history and design. Venetian architecture is evident on the south side of the square. However, the clock tower-with its astrologic clock and two bellringers-was my personal favorite. Also worth a mention is the memorial to those killed in a bomb blast in 1974. It resides to the right and below the clock face between two columns of the portico.
