One of the many squares in Padua but this one is stunning. The architecture is incredible and well worth doing some research before to understand its history. There are plenty of cafes around to sit and admire too.

Amazing building with fabulous frescoes, a replica of Foucault's pendulum and a huge, ceremonial, medieval wooden horse. A lovely cool building to spend half an hour or so in. Great markets either side, too.

The Palazzo della Ragione, a vast interior space and beautiful exterior loggia, former seat of medieval and renaissance law courts, is richly adorned inside with dozens of frescoes dating from the 14th-16th centuries. Highly recommended for lovers of fine art and beautiful architecture.

This building is 800 years old. Originally it was divided in three rooms. When it was restored 500 years ago, the walls were taken away to create this huge hall, covered with allegorical frescoes. Just the roofing is quite a sight, all in wood, not to mention the giant horse standing at one end of the hall. One cannot help... More

This gorgeous building separates the two main squares of Padua and the entire ensemble of piazzas, the Palazzo and the tower, plus adjoining buildings is simply stunning, especially in the evening. But good to visit in the morning as well when the markets are going.
