The DRAGO PALACE is located on the square next to the Cathedral of St Trypun and belonged to the noble Drago family. This palace was completely demolished in a devastating earthquake in 1979. The municipality of Kotor erected a new palace in the same place and today you can see a beautiful window (the only one preserved in one piece after the earthquake) in the Gothic style as well as a carved small coat of arms on the palace. Below the Gothic window is a street passage above which white angels are carved in the window. The coat of arms of the Drago family is a dragon. After the disappearance of the Drago family, this palace housed a kindergarten and today visitors will find here the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments.
