The Loggia and Clock Tower are part of the Hotel Palace's face to the world. The Loggia is a fine example of Renaissance architecture, but it was damaged by the Turks in 1571, repaired, and then used as a cafe from the late 19th century to as recently as the early 1970s. Today it frames elegant vintage salon in the Hotel Palace, complete with a grand piano. The clock tower was built in the 19th century on the site of the ducal palace, which was destroyed in the same assault that damaged the Loggia.
