When wandering the streets and back alleys of Old Town Kotor you will likely come across the Pima Family Palace.

Nothing extravagant but the gate across the entrance makes you wonder what went on in the Palace

Beautiful building, full of history I suppose but living in a sad present. Totally neglected, having a ugly black color, with doors closed not smiling at all to the people interested. It’s a pity.

The stone exterior has aged badly; so much of the building's beauty sits beneath a black layer of pollution (algae, moss, mold, etc.) and the stains make the exterior's facade look sad. But even a diamond can look bad when neglected. This is a diamond.

It was built after the 1667 earthquake and the styles are a mix of Renaissance and Baroque. After the 1979 earthquake, there was a bit more reconstruction. The balconies are exquisite and the green shutters help draw the eye away from the discolored exterior.

This was a prominent family in Kotor and their coat of arms sits over the door's lintel; angels flank the emblem of the family. On the bottom level there is an art museum. This beauty sits in a square called Flour Square (Trg od Brasna).

The architecture is worth a look and structure of the building. You can't go inside from what I could see but stop by when exploring the old town.

Not sure if I would've had noticed this palace, if it wasn't for the bright green shutters in front. That being said, enough with these "palaces" already! Lol

Located on the Flour Square and (of course) the palace of the noble family Pima.
Destroyed by the 1667 earthquake and rebuilt.
The coat of arms of the Pima family (held by two Angels) is displayed on top of the main portal.
After the earthquake of 1979 it was damaged and had to be reconstructed again.

You have to look past the aged facade ... heaven knows what the interior could now be like.
Supposedly the most beautiful Palace of the 17th century & it was rebuilt after the 1979 earthquake.
Imagination & a squint of the eyes may give you an impression of its past beauty.

This building is right on the main square and hard to miss. It makes for an interesting picture and adds character to the square. If you are in Old Town Kotor there is no special effort needed to find the place.

The Pima palace was built after a massive earthquake in the 17th century and dominates the square. Different styles (Renaissance and Baroque) can be seen. Our guide told us that the balcony rail is the work of Kotor blacksmiths.
It must have been a glorious building with impressive facade in its heyday, but today it looks terribly neglected - Kotor's tourist board should address this with a long-overdue cleanup. As far as I can tell, it is closed to the public.

Pima Palace is a small house that belongs to some old family (presumably Pima family) of Kotor. The Palace is located not far from the entrance of old town in Kotor. The courtyard is beautiful and has great stone work. The palace is ageing though, and can be easily identified by it's green windows.
