About These Unique Gardens

Area: The ensemble composed of the palace and gardens forms an uneven quadrilateral and covers an area of about 4.5 ha. The Irregular Plan: The plan of the villa is irregular because the architect was obliged to make use of certain parts of the previous monastic building. The Garden: On the garden side the architecture of the palace is very simple: a long main body of three storeys, marked by bands, rows of windows, and side pavilions that barely jut out. The Fascade: This uniform facade is interrupted by an elegant loggia in the middle, with two levels and stair ramps, built by Raffaello da Firenze and Biasioto (1566-67). The lower level is decorated with the Fountain of Leda. The VIlla: The main rooms of the villa are arranged in rows on two floors and open on to the garden. The private apartment of the cardinal, consisting of four rooms, is on the same level as the courtyard, and the reception rooms, linked together at the back by a long corridor called the Manica Lunga, are on the lower level.
