The space of the present-day Tartini Square used to be a small port for the local fishing boats. It became a central town square at the end of the 13th century and got its present-day form in the second half of the 19th century.

 
By filling up the small port a large market platform was formed surrounded by important town institutions and bourgeois houses. One of the few original houses from those times is a gothic house the so-called “Venetian House”. The square was named after the Piran-born violinist and composer Giuseppe Tartini who carried the name of his hometown thorough Europe. On the 300th anniversary of his birth the architect Boris Podrecca designed the present-day elliptical platform of white stone.
