Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Ca' Corner della Regina
The Palazzo or Ca' Corner della Regina is a Baroque style palace in the Sestiere Santa Croce of the city of Venice, Italy. In the English language, the title conforms with Palace of the Queen from the "Corner (or Cornaro) Family"; it is so named because Caterina Cornaro, who became "Queen of Cyprus by marriage, was born to this family and at this site in 1454. The palace facade is located on the Grand Canal, near Ca' Pesaro, and between Ca' Favretto and Palazzo Correggio.Work out when and for how long to visit Ca' Corner della Regina and other Venice attractions using our handy Venice tour itinerary planner.
The present white palace facade, bedecked with columns on the two top floors, was designed by Giuseppe Sardi in the second half of the 17th century, while the palace was reconstructed in 1724 by Domenico Rossi. The lower story has a sturdy-brick like pattern of ashlar stone masonry. The lower doors and windows are surmounted by grotesque-like masks that serve as waterspouts, hence can be called gargoyles. The upper floors have balconies with balustrades. In the upper floor, the balcony window-doors have triangular pediments. The main floor or piano nobile has tall window-doors with an rounded top and helmeted female busts at the keystone
The palace hosted the last of the Corner, a priest, until 1800, when the palace was willed to the Papal authorities, who ceded the palace to the Congregation of the Schools of Charity (Cavanis Institute) to establish a school. It subsequently became the city's Monte de Pieta.

The PRADA Foundation has moved into one of the grand canal palaces, which it has probably renovated. However I did not like the exhibition presented 2 years ago, uninteresting and not worthy of this big name of fashion, nor the atmosphere. The entrance is paid yet you have to have something to see.
