A masterpiece of Gothic Architecture, the Doge’s Palace is an accumulation of layer upon layer of building work and ornamentation, comprising the original foundations, the fourteenth/fifteenth-century structure, sizeable Renaissance additions and opulent Mannerist details.
The palace is made up of three main parts: the southern wing, the oldest one, where is the Sala del Maggior Consiglio (Room of the Major Council); the wing overlooking the square, the former palace of justice, which houses the Sala dello Scrutinio (Room of Polls); and the Renaissance wings, where were the residence of the Doge and many administrative offices.
