  • The girl at the entrance has banned the use of the lift the baby sleeping in a stroller, citing as a reason that was dedicated to disabled people. Bad behavior, no elasticity, abrupt.

  • Offers a great insight into the seat of Government of the then prevailing 18-19th century. Well-preserved ceremonial pieces, paintings, furniture and frescoes.

  • Gorgeous! The rooms are very nice and they make you plunge into another world! The only flaw is that when I visited there was a guide, I would have liked to learn more.

  • Seat of political power since the time of the Pisans and later with the Spaniards, the palazzo owes its current engineering work desired by the Piedmont region. The mansion itself was for several years the real Piedmont fleeing from Napoleon. The beautiful staircase access door to the different rooms, different colors and beauties. The yellow room is undoubtedly one of the most interesting because of the frescoes of Bruschi. The most important is however the last, today's former throne room, boardroom of the metropolitan city. Several frescoes representatives sovereign and viceroy.

  • Is a small museum where you can see original portraits and furnishings of the Palace. Very interesting.

  • The Royal Palace, also known as Regio or Viceroy, is a historic building in Cagliari, former residence of the King's representative during the aragonese domination, Spanish and Savoy and presently the seat of the Prefecture and the province of Cagliari. It is located in piazza Palazzo, in the Castello district. The Palace has 14th-century origins, and became the seat of the viceroys since 1337, at the behest of Peter IV of Aragon [1]. Over the centuries the building suffered several changes and additions. Particularly significant were the eighteenth-century restorations; in 1730, at the hands of engineers from Piedmont de Guibert and Dan was made the grand staircase leading to the piano nobile, whose rooms were restored in 1735 by the Vallea. The West façade, with the main entrance is lined up with the grand staircase, was placed by 1769, as evidenced by the inscription on the bezel of the glass door that opens onto the Central balcony. Between 1799 and 1815 the Palace was the official residence of the Royal family and the Court [1], in exile from Turin, occupied by Napoleon. In 1885 the Palace became the property of the province, which established its representative office and oversaw the restoration of the Interior, in order to adapt them to the new function. In 1893 began work on the decoration of the sala del Consiglio, del perugino Domenico Bruschi for the frescoes and Angeletti for the stucco. The work was completed in 1896.
