Piacenza Things to Do: 8 reviews and 6 photos


Il Gotico (the gothic one) is the name that most people use when they talk of the Palazzo Comunale. This medieval palace was built in 1281 and it had to be much larger, but its construction was interrupted by a pestilence, so only part of the original project was completed. The lower part is of pink marble, while the upper part is of red terra-cotta.
Inside there is a large room that in medieval time was used for assemblies, and now is used for exhibitions or lectures.
The exterior of this palace is in the picture of the introduction page.

Directions: In the centre of the city.
