Palazzaccio - Palace of Justice, Rome: 11 reviews and 17 photos

by shivan

This building is called "Palazzaccio", ugly palace in english.

That name comes from the tradition that says that people consider that palace ugly (I don't think so, probably not the best in Rome, but not so ugly).

History says that the architect that designed that palace, once he saw it finished, climbed on top of it and jumped down committing suicide.

Address: Piazza dei Tribunali

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
