The palace of Duke Sandalj Hranić in Dubrovnik was constructed between 1420 and 1432, incorporating the structures of three older buildings given to him by the Ragusan government in 1405 and as part of the agreement involving Dubrovnik’s acquisition of his ‘half of the Konavle region’ in 1419. The palace stood on the site of today’s Držićeva poljana, in the vicinity of the Rector’s Palace, its eastern front facing the port and the main, western front overlooking the apse of the Romanesque Cathedral. Based on the published as well as recently found archival evidence, this article illuminates the architectural shaping of the exterior, spatial division and interior decoration. Among the houses given to the hinterland lords at the end of the fourteenth and in the early fifteenth century the palace of Sandalj Hranić stands out not only because of its urban location but for the attention and financial means the Ragusan government invested in its reconstruction and furnishing. The article explores the various circumstances that contributed to the most representative finalization of the building as well as the role of some protagonists in this project— the decisions brought by the Minor Council and the Senate and the officials responsible for their implementation, engineers, masons and masters commissioned to build, carve architectural ornaments, decorate and paint the interior. Attention has been paid to the location of Sandalj’s palace in the context of other monumental private and public buildings in the City, data on its use along with information on the renovation and reconstruction from the close of the fifteenth century to 1667, when the building suffered irreparable damage in the Great Earthquake. All relevant documents have been compiled and chronologically arranged in the appendix.
