Architectural masterpiece in the mannerist style, this palace is in Mantua, Italy was built between 1524 and 1534 as a pleasure palace at the time located by marshland just outside the city walls. Imagined by Giulio Romano, disciple of Raphael, the palace is built in a square around a central courtyard. Approached via colonnade detailed outbuildings, the palace also has a formal gardens, but it’s main point of interest is the frescos and plaster designs which decorate almost all of the palaces external surfaces and took ten years to add after the main structure was finished.
