Corso Andrea Palladio

Palladio’s palaces in Vicenza

The Corso Andrea Palladio has its name not only in honour of the famous architect, but it is also lined with many palaces that date back at least to the drafts of the master even if they were not built by him. The straight main street runs along the former Roman Decumanus Maximus and runs through the centre from the Teatro Olimpico to the Piazza Castello.

Palladio’s palaces

Starting from the Piazza Castello with the city gate Torrione di Porta Castello, the last remains of a Scaliger Castle of Verona times, you start with two palaces of the master along the Corso Andrea Palladio: the Palazzo Porto-Breganze (No. 17) and the Palazzo Thiene Bonin Longare (No. 13) with its massive Corinthian columns – typical of Palladio’s late works. If you continue along the road you will come across the Renaissance Palazzo Capra (No. 45), the Gothic Palazzo Thiene (No. 47) and Palazzo Braschi (No. 67).

Today’s town hall of Vicenza, the great palace Trissino Baston (No. 98) with its high column-based arcade formerly belonged to Count Trissino, one of Palladio’s most important patrons. As such, the palace was built by Palladio himself. Another of Palladio’s works is the impressive Palazzo da Schio (No. 147), which is also called "Ca d'Oro” (Golden house) due to its gilded exterior. The Corso Andrea Palladio finally ends at the Piazza Matteotti, where the Palazzo Chiericati (houses the Pinacoteca of Vicenza) and the Teatro Olimpico, two other major works of Palladio, can be seen.
