Overview

The construction of this palace was financed by the gambling wins of Cardinal Raffaele Riario. The wonderful residence in early Renaissance style is said to have been designed by Bramante. Interior decorations during the 16th Century were carried out by various artists including Giorgio Vasari and Francesco Salviati. The palace was later confiscated by the Church and turned into a Papal Chancellery. Now it belongs entirely to the Vatican. A part of the palace incorporates the 4th Century CE church of San Lorenzo in Damaso. You are advised to phone before visiting.
