Luogo - Historical building
Where Via Porta Maia, Urbino (Pesaro e Urbino)
The Palace was built in the eleventh century, when the seat of the bishop was moved within the city walls, on the site where once stood the ancient Roman city walls, the remains of which, in opus quadratum, are seen embedded in the western facade and in the inner courtyard. It was subject to a series of renovations from the fifteenth century and, at the beginning of the eighteenth century, it took its present shape. On the ground floor, in the rooms adjoining the Cathedral, is the Diocesan Albani Museum, recently renovated.
