Villa Revoltella Tips (2)

Villa Revoltella and its Gardens

Original chalet in the XIX* century summer residence of Baron Revoltella.
A typical elegant town villa with park, stables, private chapel, chaplain's house, school-oratory and porter's lodge. It was constructed on the hill, known as 'Jaeger/il Cacciatore', and was the residence of Baron Revoltella, who had seen to the planting of conifers and shrubs around the residential part and the construction of terraces and a greenhouse. The villa was based on an alpine chalet model, but using masonry and iron, with two floors, and an elegant open loggia and stairway with a view looking out on to the sea. The design was the work of Federico Hitzig, the same that designed Revoltella's baronial town residence. In front of the villa there stands a fountain and four statues representing the four seasons; other pleasant corners of the park are characterized by statues, a 'gloriette', artificial caves and fountains. In the park stands the baronial chapel, the work of the Prague born architect Josef Kranner, consecrated in 1867 and accessible also from the road. The church, in neoromantic-neogothic style, was built with a richness of marble and decorative elements
