Imperial and Royal Court Inquisitor’s Office

Imperial and Royal Court Inquisitor’s Office

"The house at No. 1 is the former Palace of Bishop Samuel Maciejowski. Erected in 1531-1532, it was appropriated by the Austrian government in the first half of the 19th century for a court and prison. It only ceased to fulfil this function when a modern complex of court buildings was completed near the Mogilskie roundabout in 1970. After many years of restoration, it has been the headquarters of the Institute of the History of Architecture of Kraków University of Technology since 1990. Over the baroque portal with herms and the threatening inscription: CK Inkwizytoriat Sądowy – "Imperial and Royal Court Inquisitor’s Office" is still visible to this day." (City of Krakow site)
