Whilst this is now a museum with an entry fee, don't miss the photo opportunity of the architecture from the outside of the building. It's located at the port end of Placa (Main Street) adjacent to Orlando's Column.

From the outside the palace looks amazing, but once inside all you'll see is a lot of nothing-ness and some copied manuscripts. It is not included in the Dubrovnik card so costs 25kn to enter. Not worth it in my opinion.

This 16th century palace is a classic mixture of Gothic and Renaissance style architecture. The square shaped building. The palace is now used as an archive of old documents of the city. Nice place.

Not a lot to see, ancient building and good historical setting. Good to learn about the local history of the building. I enjoyed this little oasis.

A Must See when entering the Stradun in the Old City as it is one of the most beautiful palaces in Dubrovnik. Sponza Palace is an architectural mixture of Gothic and Renaissance style and was the seat of many state offices. Today the palace houses...More

Stood at the end of Placa Stradun, this Gothic Renaissance style building was completed in the early 16th century. Don't misunderstand as palaces in Croatia do not refer to palaces for Kings and Queens, it was rather a seat for state offices including customs, bank,...More

Visited on 16 Nov. A 16th century building. What we liked was the meaningful inscription on the wall, "Falsifying and cheating with the weights is forbidden. While I am weighing the goods, God is measuring me." (See our pictures) We saw some pictures of soldiers...More
