Doge's Palace - Secret Itineraries
A bit of history of the Doge’s Palace – Secret Itineraries
The Doge’s Palace is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. The structure consists of the accumulation of building elements and decoration, from its original structures of the 14th and 15th centuries to important details of the Renaissance and opulent fragments of Mannerism. Doge’s Palace is composed of three large blocks that include previous constructions.
The wing towards San Marco (St. Mark) Square contains the Great Council Hall which is the oldest, rebuilt after 1340 onwards. The wing of the Square is known as the Court Rooms as it contains the Sala dello Scrutinio, built to its current form from 1424 onwards. On the canal wing are the Doge's apartment and several government offices, built during the Renaissance between 1483 and 1565.
The entrance to the Doge’s Palace is by the Porta del Frumento, known by this name for the "forage office" that was nearby and which was accessed through the 14th century façade facing the sea. On the ground floor are the public services and the Textile Museum, the area that was once destined for the palace kitchen is currently occupied by the cafeteria and a room for temporary exhibitions.
