Doge's Palace


21st March 2015

Genoa's Palazzo Ducale (Ducal Palace) is one of the city's most prestigious symbols. Its construction began in 1298, when Genoa was asserting its economic power throughout the Mediterranean. The adjoining Palazzo Fieschi was incorporated into the new building, having been purchased by the Republic in 1294; part of the mediaeval building, to which the "Torre del Popolo", or Grimaldina, belongs is still visible today.
