Sapieha Palace

Sapieha Palace was named after the builder – Grand Hetman of Lithuania Jan Kazimierz Sapieha built it in the 17th century according to the design of Italian architect Giovanni Battista Frediani. The palace together with the Trinity Monastery and the Church of Jesus the Redeemer reflect the mature Baroque style. Keeping pace with the contemporary trends, Sapieha invited sculptor and architect Giovanni Pietro Perti and painter Michelangelo Palloni to decorate his luxurious summer residence. Today restorers try to revive valuable frescoes and the palace itself.
