  • This early 16th century palace was formerly the city's custom's house and mint and looks splendid from the outside. It is now home to the Stae Archives and a Memorial Room of the Dubrovnik Defenders. ...  more »
  • The beautiful Sponza Palace, dating from the 16th century, was once the site of the Customs and of the Mint, but over time was chosen some literary circle by intellectuals of the time. Today it houses the historical archives of the city and inside, there are exhibits and a small exhibition of photos dating back to the tragic war of the years ' 90. In my opinion, also saw the admission price, you simply admire it from the outside.

  • It is a building from the pile gate to Dubrovnik's old town with Placa Street going at the end going to the left side. Felt the historical building built in the 16th century. Was listening to only look that can't go during the events in.

  • Magnificent Sponza or Divona Palace was built between 1516 and 1522 in a mixed Gothic and Renaissance style, typical for 15th & 16th c. Dubrovnik (architect Pasko Miličević from Dubrovnik, sculptures by Andrijić brothers from Korčula). During the pariod of the independent Republic of Dubrovnik/Ragusa, it served as customs office, mint, treasury, school etc. Today it is seat of the Dubrovnik Archive (Dubrovnik Department of Croatian National Archives), one of the most important places for the study of medieval and early modern history of Croatia, Europe, Mediterranian countries and the Ottoman Empire, in addition to the study of Dubrovnik history, with the oldest manuscript from 1022 (Papal bull by pope Benedict VIII to Archbishop Vitalis of Ragusa/Dubrovnik).
  • This Palace was the liveliest commercial centre of the City, and in the 17th century it became the meeting place of members of the Academy of the Learned, who used to discuss literature, arts and science.
  • Great views all around. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. I would go again.
  • Fantastic palace! Words can't describe. I love this city.
  • A spectacular gothic-renesance palace in the center of the Old Town. Housed a number of different government offices and institutions throughout the centuries including a customs house, treasury and others. Close to a number of other historic sites in the center of Old Town like the Rectors Palace and the Church of Saint Blaise, so convenient to visit. Well worth the effort.
