On the smaller square in Kotor, between the main gate and Cathedral, formerly known as the Square of flour, are noticeable the remains of the palace of the famous Kotor family Buca, which during the 14th and 15 century provided a number of celebrities - businessmen, financiers, diplomats, scholars ... Among the most famous is Nikola Buca.
Palace takes up almost the entire western side of the square. It was reconstructed several times and rebuilt, losing its purity of style, butgaining the layers. It consists of three parts of different heights. The oldest layer is the Romanesque-Gothic in the ground floor - the early 14th century, while two floors with a variety of bifora and triforium, walled in one of many adaptations, is in the spirit of mature Gothic. Over the central part was upgraded the third floor, but that part, and the renewed southern tract, have no specific style values.
On the facade you can see the remains of several family coats of arms Buca (stylized lily flower), and later owner Pasquale's coat of arms (with the duck in the central part).
