Overview map:locate


The asymmetrical palace with strong bossage in the gound floor is known for its well conserved interior decoration, among which a "Judgment of Paris" ceiling by Francesco Fontebasso and a cycle of wall paintings by Jacopo Guarana ("Bacchus and Ariadne", "Zephyr and Flora" and others) are especially noteworthy. It passed to the Boldù family by marriage. As the L-type plan with a narrow courtyard and a small gate suggests, Palazzo Boldù may be a baroque rebuilding of a pre-existent gothic edifice.
