Vergerijev trg office building / Sabini-Grisoni palace

The Sabini-Grisoni Palace was built by rebuilding several older constructions from the 18th and 19th century. The renovation was designed to follow all modern spatial and structural requirements, in addition to preserving in situ the qualitative historical elements and some of the discovered wall paintings. Today, the building again carries out the mission of the Grisonis, as it houses social care programmes instead of the former orphanage. The palace was declared a cultural monument during its renovation.
