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.

We went here for a wonder around. Not so much to see although there is a museum upstairs, which we did not enter. A nice building to look at and adds charm and character to this beautiful city.

This place seems quite nice. There are many specialty food shops on the ground floor which was nice to visit. The place is a bit stinky though. I don't know if it's the cheese shops or the prosciutto. But definitely worth a visit in Padua.

Nothing, but a "big room" can somebody say... but what a room. It's a huge,enormous, beautifully preserved hall with fantastic wooden ceiling and paintings. Absolutely worth visiting. With Padua card it is free.

A very large room which was hot and stuffy. The art on the walls was hard to view. Worth a short visit if you have the Padova card because it is included free

The exterior is lovely from either of the two piazzas that surround it. Enjoy that no matter what. The interior is most impressive for its size. Free with the Padua Card. Read about the history of the building.

A huge hall decorated with frescoes. There is an enormous wooden horse at one end of the hall which looks small in this large hall. The building dates back to the twelfth century. There is a covered market in front of the building that has Been in existence for 800 years.
