Palazzo dei Priori

Old Town

Palazzo dei Priori

12th-13th century

It is a palace that undoubtedly had an important role in the public life of the ancient town, although the name ‘Palazzo dei Priori’, attributed to it by historian L. Dasti, is not attested in sources.
Resulting from the merging of several private buildings, mostly dating back to the 12th-13th centuries, it is currently partly owned by the Società Tarquiniense d’Arte e Storia (STAS), which has its headquarters here, and partly owned by private individuals.
The sides are flanked by towers, which contribute to the palace’s imposing appearance as a fortified building.
The part of the palace owned by STAS overlooking Via delle Torri houses the Museum of Ceramics in Corneto, while cultural events are often hosted in the Sala Sacchetti located at Via dell’Archetto.
