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”.
