Basilica Palladiana

Basilica Palladiana Masterpiece of Palladio

Basilica Palladiana

Monumental masterpiece by Andrea Palladio

The Basilica Palladiana is the main work of the artist Andrea Palladio and one of the most impressive and most beautiful buildings in all of Veneto. Originally a large Gothic brick building it served as a meeting hall of the Great Council. On account of the aesthetically impoverished façade a competition for renovation was announced, which Palladio won. Through decades of work Palladio covered the old walls with a two-story portico with marble columns, which was ultimately his artistic breakthrough.

The name Basilica, by the way, comes from Palladio himself. In the 16th century Basilica did not refer to church, but rather to a meeting room and courtroom. It’s a marvel to witness the huge scale of the imposing building from the inside. The large hall on the first floor gives a good impression of the size of the building. Temporary exhibitions take place here which can be visited.
