The GRGURINA PALACE is located on the square of the Museum, the Navy Square or ,how the locals call it, the Circus Square. The palace was built in the seventeenth century and belonged to the Grgurina family, which came to Kotor from the Istrian peninsula. The owner of the palace was the merchant Marko Grgurina, who brought the Venetian sculptor Francesco Cabianca to Kotor in 1704, and was responsible for the interior of the reliquary in the cathedral of St Tripun. Marko Grgurina is another significant figure in this family, he was the bishop of Kotor, who left his palace to the poor of the city. Until 1938, the palace served for military purposes, after which the museum of the Navy was opened on the first floor of the palace. The interior of the palace is partly preserved and the original interior will return visitors back into history.
