Villa Barbaro

Villa Emo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Fanzolo di Vedelago, is an architectural masterpiece designed by world-renowned architect Andrea Palladio. This spectacular villa is the epitome of inspiration for anyone interested in Italian Renaissance architecture.

Surrounded by lush green gardens and fields of wheat, Villa Emo stands as a picturesque reminder of the timeless beauty that Palladio was able to bring to life through his creative genius. Its majestic facade captures the essence and grandeur of 16th-century Italian architecture with its imposing columns, expansive porticos and detailed frescoes. Inside the villa lies an even bigger surprise – Palladio’s ornate interior design featuring intricate stucco work, magnificent frescoed ceilings, marble floors and grandiose furnishings that has remained unchanged for centuries.

Inside you will also find a chapel which was added to the complex after its completion in 1600. This picturesque area includes several other buildings, such as stables and barns, as well as a library filled with rare books.
