Grifalconi Loredan Palace


Venice: Palazzo Grifalconi Loredan - 17 kB

General remarks:

Date:15th century
Address:Cannaregio 6359
Current use:private
Overview map:locate


This palazzo is described in the technical literature because of its open gothic stairway, which I could photopraph 'by accident'. Due to the exclusive use of arches of fifth order, it is said that the building dates from the 15th century.
The palace has conserved much of gothic building material, there are only very few alterations. Also the marvellous land gate is in a good state.
