Sponza Palace Tours

At the end of the Placa - or Stradun - in Luza Square stands the gorgeous Gothic-Renaissance Sponza Palace.

Built in 1516-1522 to serve as a customs house, Sponza is one of the few buildings to have survived the 1667 earthquake that levelled much of the city. Designed by chief architect Paskoje Milicevic, the Palace is a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance styles popularized in the 16th century.

The exquisite Renaissance porch and the sculptural ornaments of the building were carved by master stone-cutters, the brothers Andrijic, in 1516.

Sponza Palace has had many lives since its beginnings as a customs house: the mint, the State treasury and a bank. It now houses the State archives, a significant collection of manuscripts dating back nearly a thousand years.

Practical Info

The palace courtyard, historically a meeting place for Dubrovnik’s artists and intellectuals, regularly hosts art exhibits and concerts and plays a unique role in the opening ceremony for the city’s Summer Festival.

Sponza Palace is in Luza Square at the end of the Placa Stradun, in the Old Town.
