Overview map:locate


Palazzetto Cavalli is located near the Rialto adjacent to Ca' Farsetti. The 16th century façade on the homonymous fondamenta shows so-called barbacani, i.e. wooden consoles allowing the upper floors to protrude from the ground floor - a construction principle that was prohibited later. The palace with a L-type plan has wings with three window axis on the Grand Canal. A wooden chapel, overhanging on the Calle, can be found in the piano nobile. Some stucco works are preserved.
The palace is today used for civil wedding ceremonies.
