I believe this to be the most perfect of all buildings      Villa Capra, “La Rotonda” (1567 -1580) is a Renaissance villa just outside Vicenza, in northern Italy, designed by Andrea Palladio and considered to be one of his best-known legacies to the architectural world. Palladio based his work on a revival of the classical temple building stylings of ancient Greece and Rome. In credit to his refinement and popularization of this genre, it is generally referred to today as “Palladian”.

Villa Caldogno is a villa in the Veneto region of Italy, which is attributed to Andrea Palladio. It was built for the aristocratic Caldogno family on their estate in the village of Caldogno near Vicenza. The villa is not included in I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura, Palladio's treatise of 1570, in which the architect discussed a number of his creations. However, it is similar to certain villas, such as the Villa Saraceno, that Palladio is known to have created in the 1540s  1550s.

Andrea Palladio: the 'Tempietto Barbaro' adjacent Villa Barbaro Volpi in Maser (Treviso); it was completed in 1580 the year of Palladio's death; actually, Palladio died in Maser, very likely supervising the construction of this church.
