Palaca Sponza

(Sponza Palace)


The Sponza Palace, once the city's custom house and mint, grew in storeys as Dubrovnik grew in wealth, with a facade that features broad Renaissance arches on the ground floor and florid Venetian Gothic windows on the first floor. It was designed by Paskoje Milicevic in 1522, although much of the stone-carving was done by Josip Andrijic, who also worked on Korcula's cathedral as well as Dubrovnik's St. Saviour's Church.
