Venetian House

One of the most famous buildings on Tartini Square is the breath-taking Venetian House, the most beautiful example of Venetian Gothic architecture in Piran. The building, which is known as Benečanka among the locals, astonishes with its well-designed architectural elements, rich stone ornaments and the Gothic corner balcony. Between the second-floor windows facing the square, there is an immured stone relief with the inscription »Lassa pur dir« (let them talk).

Legend has it that a Venetian merchant fell in love with a beautiful young Piranese girl.
To show to his beloved the strength of his love he decided to build her a palace near the harbor. The envious citizens were gossiping about the passionate couple so to show his true love for her he put the significant inscription on the facade.
