Sponza Palace

Recommended
The arcaded gallery of this palace immediately catches the eye; it was formerly home to the customs and minting works of the Republic of Raguse. Today the municipal archives are stored here, some of which date back to 1022. The striking façade is a junction between Gothic and Renaissance styles. As it is one of the rare buildings to have survived the earthquake of 1667, it gives the visitor an idea of the opulence of the palaces of the era. To the rear of the courtyard are the old mechanism of the town clock and a memorial to the Croatian soldiers of 1991-92.
