About the Villa: It is one of the most important Venetian Villas built by Andrea Palladio and certainly the most famous.

The Villa stands on a hill on the outskirts of Vicenza and looks like a Roman temple. It is clear that the plan of the building consists of a central cube surmounted by a dome, while the four equal facades have a facade facing the temple with six Ionic columns, which are accessed by wide staircases.
