Acquired by the Savoys, it passed to the D’Oria family following an exchange with the Principality of Oneglia. It was later transformed into a “delightful” hunting lodge, with an apartment reserved for Duke Carlo Emanuele II.
Subsequent interventions changed the physiognomy of the Palace, modeled after the Savoy residences.
The museum itinerary for Palazzo D’Oria, also home to prestigious temporary exhibitions, now includes the Quadreria dei Marchesi (the marquises’ collection of paintings), with portraits of the D’Oria and Gontery families, a rich historical library with valuable volumes and parchments dating back to the 14th century, the apartment of Carlo Emanuele II, the Council Hall (formerly the Hall of Ceremonies) and the Fresco Room, recently restored.
Visitors to Palazzo D’Oria can also go to visit the tombs of the family of the same name, in the chapel inside the nearby Cathedral of San Giovanni (which celebrated its 700th anniversary in 2019)
