Palace 8a
The palace belongs to the second half of the 15th century. There was a room that combined a cellar and a workshop on the ground floor. There was a large and important room on the second floor. The most prominent are two rectangular rooms. Both are placed on rectangular consoles and have portruding slates where flower pots used to be place.According to what the locals say, in the 19th century, during Ottoman rule, there used to be a bank housed in this building.

Palace 8b
This Palace fallen into ruin, used to be a large medieval residential building which was greatly changed later. it must have belonged to a very wealthy family and had a ground floor and two upper floors at least.

Palace 18b
This Palace was completely demolished, According to its possition, it must have belonged to the city captain and it was built together with the cistern at the beginning of the 16th century.

Palace 14 - The Prince's Palace
"The Prince's Palace" was the most important private building which has a few seperate chronological phases. It is possible that at the end of the 14th and in the first half of the 15th century it was Balsic family court or the court of Serbian rulers. During the first phase it was inside the fortress. It was later refurbished and also belonged to some building which are thought to have been "porta morta" or the dead doors, which were walled when the deceased was taken out of the house, according to the custom of that time.

Palace 15 - Archbishop's Palace
It is very unclear whether this court which belonged to the highest town church official was a church in the beginning. The great portal and the three narrow gothic windows might indicate that it really was a church which was later turned into a bishop's court.Considering the fact that the current terrain level is almost two meters higher than the previous one because the space in front of the building had to be filled in during the construction of the walls, this presumption is quite possible. Actually, this is not even a presumption because the western facade conception can only correspend to a church.
It is not quite certain when the curch was turned into a residenced. The inscription which was found later mentions the archdiocesan office and the year 1400, which confirms the presumption that the bishop's court used to be here.


Constructed tombs painted on all four sides with red crosses were excavated inside the chuch. On some tombs a cross was engraved into the mortar. Many people were buried in these tombs so it is supposed that they were the crypts of priests. During research in the 1990s, coins from the 15th and 16th centuries from Bar and Kotor were found here and these could set the date of the tombs. The assumption that the tombs in question date back to the much earlier late antique period is also valid.
From the beginning of the second half of the 15th century, not long after adopting the rich Venetian Gothic shapes, Italian artists started introducing Renaissance elements into the coastal-area architecture. This way, Gothic windows such as monophores,biphores and triphores appeared on wide and bright Renaissance arches and porticos in Montenegrin artist's interpretations. The infusion of Renaissance spirit with the usual Gothic forms reveals the fact that the local population did not adopt the progressive ideas brought by foreign artists so easily. This way a newe process began on the coastal area at the beginning of the second half of the 15th century. It was similar to the one which used to accompany the Gothic style when it was joined with the Romanesque style giving an original Romanesque-Gothic mark on many town buildings.
The facade got more colourful by the construction of multipart carved windows, simple openings and a carved stone ornament.
