Cà da Mosto, one of the most ancient palaces in Venice.



Ca' da Mosto

The Ca' da Mosto palace faces onto Canal Grande and sits between the Ca’ d’Oro and the Rialto Bridge.

The ground and first floors date back to the early 13th Century. The palace was extended in the 1600s at which point it gained its beautiful Venetian/Byzantine façade.
It is dedicated to the famous explorer Alvise Cadamosto (1432-1488) who was born here.
Cadamosto undertook several commercial journeys along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts. When in Portugal he served the son of King Henry the Navigator, exploring the Canary Islands and the Islands of Capo Verde.

The palace was used as a hotel during 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries: the famous “Albergo del Leon Bianco”, frequented by many important people, including Emperor Joseph II of Austria.
