Palazzo Ducale


Seat of Sassari city council and the Museo della Città. The museum is divided into two sections: the Stanze del Duca, three rooms illustrating the palace's former life as an aristocratic 18th-century residence; and the Cantine del Duca, an underground section in the building's cellars.
