Palazzo Ducale, or “Doge’s Palace” in English, is a beautiful gothic palace on the Grand Canal of the city of Venice in north-eastern Italy.
The Ducale Palace not only houses the doge of Venice but also the political institutions of the city-state as long as it remained a republic.
In England, there are some imitations of the Ducale Palace’s unique architectural structure dating back to the 19th century!
The Wool Exchange in Bradford, UK for example was modelled after the Doge’s Palace of Venice. Be sure to pay a visit to Venice and compare the profound architectural detail of its landmarks and significant attractions.
