Description

Architectural view of the palace Loredan in a Venetian-Byzantine style. The ground floor of the facade is pierced by a portico consisting of five stilted arches , supported by four Corinthian columns , flanked on either side by two same-shaped windows. The main floor is punctuated same way, with above the portico, a group of seven windows, extended on each side, a group of three windows in the same style. The frieze above has two crests; one with the coat of arms of the Corner, sword in pale placed in charge of a ribbon, the other the royal arms of Lusignan, Cyprus. Four statues adorn the frieze at the ends a David and Goliath, and in the center a Justice and Force.
