Palazzo Ducale - Doge's Palace, Venice: 225 reviews and 482 photos
The Palazzo Ducale is placed at the southern side of the piazza San Marco.
The imposing complex with yards and hallways, advice halls and secret rooms served as doge's residence and control centre of the Venetian power.
The rich provision of the building with paintings, naked marble grounds and gilt wood panels, pulls, still today, each visitor, invariably, in its railway.
From the water and from the country accessible, frankly and inviting, it appears directly at the Molo, standing Palazzo Ducale.
Its arcades open with the Porta del Frumeto.
The first construction of the Dogenpalastes, at this place, began in the 9th century.
The Doge Agnello Partecipazio let erected the first fortified residential castle in the year 812.
In the year 976, the people put the Palace and the unmitigated quarter, in the Fleming.
The first palace of stone arose from 1175.
Unknown master builders created a glamorous palace between 1340 and 1550 on huge rust from tree trunks and stone at the water, a luxury place to stay for Doges, a state palace for the aristocracy.
