Ca' Loredan.

Ca' Loredan is a former palace of the Loredan family in Venice, northern Italy. It is located in the sestiere (district) of San Marco, and faces the Canal Grande, not far from the Ponte di Rialto. Together with the annexed Ca' Farsetti, it is currently home to the city's municipal council. This palace is distinct from the museum and Palazzo Loredan Cini also on the Grand canal.

Use in Fiction[edit]

This is one of the potential locations of the Banco di Niccolò in Dorothy Dunnett's House of Niccolò series.
