Grgurina Palace is located on the square in Kotor, which occupies the central part of the urban core. Family Grgurina in the second half of the 17th century moved to Kotor from Koper (Istria). Dealing with electronic commerce, Grgurina gained considerable wealth, and soon they were aggregated in Kotor patricians.
The palace was built in the very beginning of the 18th century by Conte Grgurina Marko. Building is a typical example of mature Baroque - symmetrical main facade, with an emphasis on the vertical axis, which is dominated by balconies, profiled portals and main entrance. It was built with beautifully carved stone cubes from Korcula. Brackets, baluster, molded of door and other elements are treated material brought from Korcula.
The interior layout, especially the first floor ("piano nobile"), is typical for the baroque palace in the Bay. Around the great grand salon in the center are arranged four rooms. Large stone terrace with a loggia and walled garden with horticulture supplemented the Baroque impression. The terrace is fitted with a family coat of arms - goat (Capra in Italian), the symbol of the city of Koper, in memory of family's background.
