  Utrecht: Groot Paushuize
by OlafS

This palace, Groot Paushuize, was built from 1517 onwards for Adriaan Florisz. Boeyens, who wanted to go and live here after his regentship of the later emperor Charles V would have been ended. It would never happen. In 1522 Adriaan became pope ("paus") Adrianus VI. A year later he died in Rome, without ever having seen his house.
