At the end of the 13th century, the Venetians built the Town Hall building outside the town walls as they existed at that time. It was constructed in the Roman-Gothic style with a façade full of immured coats of arms and inscriptions. At the end of the 19th century, the new Town Hall was built on Tartini Square. Its most distinctive feature is the immured stone statue of a lion holding an open book, a memento of the Venetian Serenissima Republic and the previous town hall building. On the first floor, there is a hall devoted to Domenico Tintoretto. Here, his large painting named »Mary with a child and the dignitaries of Piran« can be found.
