Palladio’s most famous villa
Just a few steps away from the Villa Valmarana ai Nani you will reach the Villa Rotonda by a dirty road. It is also known as Villa Capra Valmarana and is probably the most famous villa by Andrea Palladio. It is next to the Basilica in the city centre of Vicenza Palladio’s most famous work and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. The beautiful dome building on a square base stands on a small hill. A large loggia with Ionic columns is mounted on each side, giving the building an almost temple-like appearance.
Inside there are eight interconnecting rooms with numerous frescoes and sculptures by Rubini.
