Villa Badoer

Overview

An impressive aesthetic and cultural experience

If you go to Fratta Polesine, you can't miss paying a visit to Villa Badoer, also known as La Badoera, a beautiful Venetian villa which stands about 20 kilometres from the city of Rovigo.

It was designed in 1554 by the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, one of the most important figures in Venetian architecture. The building is a perfect combination of the aesthetic aspirations of Badoer, who came from a noble Venetian family, and the functional considerations: the complex includes stables and farm buildings cleverly hidden from view.

Villa Badoer stands on a high base with an imposing flight of steps leading up to the entrance. At the sides, the barchesse have been positioned in such a way as to conceal the stables, barns, grain stores and other farm buildings.

The pillars, coats of arms and elaborate frescoes add much to the visual impact.
