The Doge's Palace is a gothic palace in Venice. The palace was the residence of the Doge of Venice.  Its two most visible facades look towards the Venetian Lagoon and St Mark's Square.  There is extensive arcading in the lower stories.  The current palace was largely constructed from 1309 to 1424.  Giovanni and Bartolomeo Bon created the Porta della Carta in 1442, a monumental late-gothic gate on the Piazzetta side of the palace.  The palace was badly damaged by fire in 1574.  Since the 16th century the palace has been linked to the prison by the Bridge of Sighs.  As well as being the ducal residence, the palace housed political institutions of the Republic of Venice until the Napoleonic occupation of the city.

Intended to inspire awe, I find the Doge's Palace rather gaudy.
