The town hall is in the old roman forum with the two century old of agustus next door. The back wall was part of the original temple to Diana. Much of the building was built with stones repurposed from roman buildings.

3/5... It's a beautiful building but... Thats all. Not a "Must see" thing, but when you're strolling the streets, you can check this out!

This Main Square area, where Town Hall is, iscentre of Old Town. Lots to see and do. Take a sit in one of many restaurants and watch those beautiful buildings and people passing by. We were lucky enough to see wedding party in front of the Town Hall

The building is situated at the main square (Forum Square) next to the Temple of Augustus. It was actually built at the site of Diana temple which once formed the triade of Roman temples. The palace was built in the 13th century using the material from the old temples and even today the part of the Temple of Diana is... More

Although all attention seems to be drawn to the temple of August immediately situated next to this building, please take a minute to look at this beautiful palace as well: it is worth it

If you are visiting the Temple of Augustus in the main square of Pula, the Town Hall or City Palace is right next door ! Probably not worth a trip in it's own right, but worth a look while you are there anyway !

The building incorporates older architecture and during the day has a nearby tourist office and cafes in the square and is also a poinr where performances take place in the evenings which seem popular. It is adjacent to the temple of Augustus and strangely is close to container ships so the old clashes with the new.

This is an excellent place. We went during a festival and it was great. Surrounded by bars and restaurants added by the extremely friendly people of Pula this is a location not to be missed . Great historical value just one of many locations not to be missed

The Communal Palace is situated at the northern end of the main square in Pula. The spot occupied by the Palace has been used for the public buildings since ancient Rome, when the place was used as a part of the triade of Roman temples, of which today only Temple of Augustus remains. The Town Hall sits next to The... More
