Villa Almerico Capra “La Rotonda”

Villa La Rotonda is a Renaissance villa just outside Vicenza designed by the Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio.

The name “Capra” derives from the Capra brothers, who completed the building after it was ceded to them in 1592.

La Rotonda, as it became known later, is one of the most famous and imitated buildings in the history of modern architecture.

It is undoubtedly the most famous villa of Palladio and, probably, of all the Venetian villas.

Along with other works by Palladio, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994.

Address: Via della Rotonda, 45.
