Palazzo Salimbeni, Siena: 8 reviews and 19 photos
Palazzo Salimbeni was built in the 14th century of a site on an pre-excisting structure. In 19th century the palace was completely reconstructed in present neo-Gothic style, including the merlons, the Lombard bands and the ogival triple mullioned windows. The windows are almost identical to those at Palazzo Pubblico, most likely the architect was inspired from there. Further reconstructions dates from the 20th century.
The palace faces a square with the statue of Sallustio Bandini, from 1882, who was politician, economist and religious man. The square is closed by the 16th century Palazzo Tantucci, on the right, and 15th century Palazzo Spannochi, on the left. Both palaces were designed by Giuliano da Maiano.
Currently Palazzo Salimbeni houses the seat of Monte di Paschi bank.
