Palazzo Chiericati

The palace was designed by Palladio in 1550 for Girolamo Chiericati and the construction works started soon after he finished the plans.

Following Girolamo's death, the works passed under his son's directions, which also took care of the south wing decoration.

The western section of the courtyard was built in the 19th century.

The two-story building has a continuous loggia on the ground floor and an upper section with a closed central section with two lateral loggias.

The interior is still adorned with 16th century decorations and frescoes. Since 1838 the palace is home to the city art museum.

Opening hours: Tuesday - Sunday: 9:00 – 17:00

Palazzo Chiericati

This building is currently the home of Vicenza's Museo Civico. The building was begun in 1550, and yes, is another example of work from hometown renaissance Architect Palladio. A commission from Girolamo Chiericati.

Inside you’ll find works of art by local Vicentini artists, but more impressive are pieces by the likes of Tintoretto, Veronese, and Tiepolo.

The building is across the street from the Teatro Olimpico, at the beginning (eastern end) of Corso Palladio.
