Neighborhood: Anzio - Nettuno

Palazzo Farnese stands at the end of the bridge that leads to Piazza del Duomo. The building is currently the home of the administration offices of the hospital. It was built during the first half of the 15th Century by one of the forefathers of Alessandro Farnese (who became Pope Paul III) but it was designed using elements of the architectural style of the previous century. The windows are typically medieval as they open on the side. Two orders of two-light mullioned windows are framed by rounded arches on the ground floor and by pointed arches on the upper floor. Even the stairway in the inner courtyard is typical of 14th-century architecture.
