    Rector's Palace

The most historic monument in Dubrovnik, the Rector’s Palace was rebuilt twice. The first, by Onofrio della Cava of fountain fame, was in Venetian-Gothic style, visible in the window design once you ascend the grand staircase to the Rector’s living quarters. Thereafter Florentine Michelozzo Michelozzi was responsible for the loggia façade. On the ground floor, either side of a courtyard, are the prison and courtrooms of the Ragusa Republic, and a glittering display of medieval church art. Upstairs, where each Rector resided for his month’s stint, is a strange assortment of items: sedan chairs, carriages, magistrates’ robes and wigs, portraits of local notables and Ivo Rudenjak’s beautifully carved bookcase. One curiosity is the clocks,
some set at quarter to six, the time in the evening when Napoleon’s troops entered in 1806. The same ticket is valid for the Archeological Collection, a small but attractive collection of medieval carvings as the Rector’s Palace) right by Ploče gate.
