We shall be entering the Palace by the so called Brass Gate- located at the Palace's southern façade. As we proceed through the central Basement Hall area, we will have the chance to fully understand the importance of this particular area of the Palace- it is the best preserved part of the whole edifice, as it was initially build back in the late antiquity era!
This is where the real fun starts! Let your guide transfer you literally back in time, by explaining everything about the Imperial Mausoleum, the Cathedral of St. Domnius, The Baptistry of St. John the Baptist, the ancient Egyptian Sphinx...and so much more!
We have so many things to discover at this part of the Palace! We will analyze the ancient military defense tactics used in the Palace, we will decipher the hidden symbolical messages conveyed by its architectural features, and we will even get some good luck totally free of charge by meeting Gregory of Nin- the iconic lucky charm of the city of Split!
