The most notable feature is the loggias, which associated with the use of Palladian windows later in Renaissance architecture and classical buildings.
It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is located in the middle of the flourishing estate whose Historic Winery produces great quality of wines. The fruits of the vines have played a central part in the life of the villa and are sources of joy and pride for the owner. Inside the villa, Paolo Veronese created a cycle of frescoes, which is considered of the most extraordinary mural paintings.
The villa provides especially effective evidence of Palladio's ability to achieve monumental effects while using poor materials: brick and plaster.
It is one of Palladio's most spacious, is of a residence completely open to the surrounding countryside, simple but imposing, evocative of the classical image but well-suited to the practicalities of daily life, with the activities of the farm labourers and the intellectual employment of the owner and his circle gathered together under one roof.
It is probably the best known of Palladio's many villas. It is a unique structure since it is a square structure with a domed rotunda. The concept used totally represents the Renaissance worldview.
