Italy - Venice - The Dodge palace




Mar 2012

Today a museum, this was the residence of Venice republic's main authority. The first palace was made around the 9th century, then destroyed and remade around the 12th century. It was modified and partially rebuilt several times until the 16th century. I didn't visit its inside (didn't want to queue for hours although I wish i saw the courtyard), so you'll see on this blog nothing but picture of its outside parts.

Le premier palais remonte au 9eme siècle, fut détruit et reconstruit au 12eme siècle, puis modifié et partiellement reconstruit plusieurs fois jusqu'au 16eme siècle. Je n'en ai pas visité l'intérieur (pas envie de faire la queue pendant des heures) bien que j'aurais apprécié d'en voir la cour intérieure. Vous ne verrez donc sur ce blog rien d'autres que des photos de l'extérieur.
