The scale of this palace leaves little doubt as to the stature of the family that once owned it. The Potockis were amongst the most powerful clans in Central Europe. After Poland was wiped off the map in the eighteenth century they eventually rose up the ranks in the Habsburg hierarchy, providing several governors for Galicia itself. The last owner of the palace ended his days in exile in France in 1958. Recently restored, the palace now houses a branch of the Lviv Gallery of Art. The main focus is on Renaissance and Baroque art, and the interiors themselves are interesting.
