The square was once an inner dock for smaller vessels such as fishing boats, and was located outside of the first city walls. The dock was replaced by a formal town square in 1894.

PIRAN, Slovenia - The jewel of the Slovenian coast, the Venetian town of Piran stands compact on a small peninsula on the northern tip of the Adriatic sea. It is one of the best-preserved historical towns anywhere on the Adriatic.
