Romanesque House and Gallery
The Romanesque House is one of the rare surviving examples of architecture from the Romanesque period. It is located near the Marafor Square along the Roman Decumanus Street. Built in the 13th century, it was renewed several times. During the reconstruction of the original Romanesque appearance of the House, a wooden balcony was added. Despite frequent reconstruction, the House is still recognizable by the main elements of the Romanesque residential architecture. A typical Romanesque ground plan is characterized by regularity and simplicity and the absence interior walls, while the house is built of cut blocks. The facade of the house is adorned with a Romanesque biphora, i.e. two windows that are located under a wooden balcony. The house used to be part of a residential building, but after World War II it became independent.
