  The Venetian House
by croisbeauty

This charming red palace is one of the most beautiful example of Venetian Gothic architecture in Piran. It was built in the middle of the 15th century, and is the oldest preserved house at the Tartini Square.
The corner Gothic balcony is the most ipmressive detail of the building. Between the windows on the second floor there is an immured stone relief with a standing Venetian lion, under the lion you can read the inscription "Lassa pur dir" (let them talk), and it is connected with the love story of an local girl and her boyfriend from Venice.

Address: Tartini Square
