Papalićeva palača, dvorište - Papalić Palace, courtyard

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This wondreful large Gothic-Reanissance stone building is located in the northeastern part of Diocletian's palace, within the

complex of other Medieval buildinqs. It is situated in their center.

Designer and builder was very famous Croatian native master Juraj Dalmatinac ("Giorgio da Sebenico") in 15th century.

Beautifully carried out are the courtyard with its richly decorated portal and loggia, the first floor hall with its lavish four-light,

two-light and one-light windows and with the well preserved wooden ceiling.

The Renaissance building with a fine window decoration completes the ensemble of the courtyard.

Almost 64 years it is in function as the very interesting and rich City Museum of Split.

Inside, the permanent museum exhibition relates a segment from the history of the city, the period when Split was an autonomous

city commune, 12th-14th c.

The city statute, seal and coins and the Romanesque sculptures from the belfry of the cathedral stand out among the exhibits.

Within the period of Venetian rule, 14th-16th c., a central place is given to the Marko Marulić's literary circle. Mention should also

be made of Libro d'Oro, Gothic-Renaissance coffers. In the armoury section are exhibited the weapons from the

14th-18th c., used for the defence of Split.
