The imposing structure of the Palazzo della Ragione which is situated alongside the Piazza delle Erbe, houses the Offices of the Magistrats Court and the Court of Assize. There are two plaques showing differing dates of construction, 1138 and 1193. It is a large square building with a central paved courtyard. In 1218 a terrible fire destroyed much of the palace but it was quickly rebuilt the following year. It has its own Chapel which sits in the north-east corner of the palace. The large ‘Stairway of the Accounting Building’ was built inside the courtyard in 1447 below the Lamberti Tower. The building is set over three floors.
