The city has ancient origins and is characterized by buildings in the typical Venetian style.

The square is a meeting place for tourists drawn by the many local restaurants.
In the old town of Piran (Slovenia), in the square called Prvomajski trg is the Galleria San Donato, built inside a former church whose origins date back to 1325.
The building has a beautiful façade in Baroque style and has been carefully restored by the Viennese architect Boris Podrecca and has been repeatedly published in architectural magazines.
The church of San Donato's interior was transformed and has most recently been the commercial base of an art gallery featuring a groundfloor, suspended second floor with utility rooms in the basement.
From the square leads to the ground floor where there is a long wooden bench inlaid with precious marble and a particular solution continues in continuity downstairs.
On the walls there are niches lit as display cases.
A staircase leads to the loft space which is suspended and supported by four columns and is totally detached from the perimeter walls. It features fully exposed wooden beams and was designed in the shape of an inverted ship's hull to remember the seafaring traditions of the town of Piran.
From this open and airy space on can access a small outdoor terrace that overlooks the square.
Both the loft and terrace were previously used to exhibit works of art and is already equipped with appropriate lighting which would best enhance the artists work.
From the ground floor a staircase leads to the basement. In this space a small coffee corner has been created where one is able to receive guests, to converse and relax. This spaceis primarily used as the office and also features a large counter area with large drawers which provide additional storage. A further feature is a shower and WC, entirely covered with Bisazza mosaic tiles. http://www.bisazza.it/en-us/products .
Gallery St. Donat is characterized by the superb care to architectural details and the furnishings were designed by the architect Podrecca directly and manufactured by experts and local craftsmen. All this beautifully bespoke furniture is made of pear wood.
The building can maintain its intended commercial use but it is also possible to use as a dwelling.
The building is heated and there is an air conditioning system.
