Look to the loggia of Basilica Palladiana to find one of the first examples of what became known as the Palladian window. After the original version of this iconic building partially collapsed, local architect Andrea Palladio was commissioned to rebuild it in 1549. Check inside to see if an exhibition is running or if you can access the bar. To visit Basilica Palladiana on your trip to Vicenza, use our Vicenza route builder app .
Basilica Palladiana Reviews
Базилика, представляющая яркие стилевые особенности готики в городском дизайне интересна галереями и колоннадой, украшающими фасад и является главным зданием на площади.

The basilica was built not as a church, but as a meeting hall of the Great Council. On the second floor there is a large hall (52 m long) with a wooden vaulted ceiling.
Los edificios de Palladio son todos bastante impresionantes aún sin entender de arquitectura solo como aficionado al arte son una auténtica maravilla. Muy recomendable more »Palladio's buildings are all quite impressive yet without understanding architecture only as an art buff are a real marvel. Highly recommended
The Palladian Basilica is a very important piece in the history of the western world. It was actually named a basilica by Andrea Palladio, the designer of its arched porches, to honor the roman empire basilicas, where people would gather to trade goods and hold meetings. Apart from being an architectural masterpiece, the basilica has a lot of very pleasant cafes and restaurants, both at the ground floor, and at the top terrace, and it is also visitable in the second part of the day (except the great hall at the piano nobile). The great hall at the first floor is like a big wooden ark/ship turned on its head. One of the most magnificently grandiose interior spaces in the history of the western world.
Stunning building, if you go to Vicenza it's a must see! During the summer, the rooftop (with a bar) is open to the public, so you can enjoy some beautiful views.
