In front of the Cathedral there is the Palazzo Comunale which was the first residence of the Este's family and it was restored in 1924. On the side of the building there is the Torre della Vittoria. The main gateway of the Palazzo Ducale was made under a project of Leon Battista Alberti. In the sides of the gateway you can see two pillars with statues: the statue of Duca Borso seated and Niccolò III in a horse. They are a reproductions made in 1926 because the original ones where destroyed by French in 1796.
