  Facade of Pallavicini Palace
by Sharrie

4 days in a city is not a long time.
Yet, in Vienna, one'd be sure to be "bombarded" (delightfully, may I add) with sculpture & arts of all kinds.

Just take a look at the facade of this building.
I find it very appealing, perhaps because they are all new to me, just like a new found love, every inch & corner excites.
& to think that this has perhaps survived generations...
It's mind-boggling!

If I'm not mistaken, this was once a palace.
To be exact, Pallavicini Palace.
Built in 1786, the palace has a remarkable door framed by caryatids & is now used as a convention center.

Right, Oliver?

Address: Many to choose from in Vienna.
Directions: Located throughout the city.
