Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo

Cds MG 1918 2
This is an interesting little palace that I found; literally “of the snail”. I love the quaint outside staircase winding up to the sky. I got completely lost while looking for it, resulting in an extended tour of the area, but it is such a lovely little building, tucked away in a quiet little square. I believe that it was build in 1499, so I think it is looking pretty good.

If you have the opportunity, visit this little palace off the beaten track.

    Beautiful building. And yes, I’d say it looks quite good for it’s age!
