Bishop's Palace (Pienza)

Corso il Rossellino 30 (Pienza)

The Episcopal Palace of Pienza is on the left side of the Piazza Pio II in front of Palazzo Piccolomini. The old Gothic Palace was donated by Pope Pius II to Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia (Pope Alexander VI) who at the time was his closest collaborator with the position of the Catholic Church Vicancelliere; He rebuilt in the 15th century to make his residence.
The sober façade is characterised by its slender portal and two rows of Windows to "Guelph cross". The edge overlooking the course of Rossellino you can see the coat of arms of the Borgia family.
