On the hill overlooking Este, the villa was erected by the contarini family, perhaps designed by the great architect Vincenzo Scamozzi. The nickname 2Prince” is linked to a historical event: the lection of Doge Alvise Contarini, which occured while the patrician was in the residence of Este. Altered in later centuries, the villa is located in the center of a large trachyte paved courtyard and looks like a quadrangular block with gabled façades preceded by steps: the basements slightly protruding, the portals and windows are decorated with rusticated quoins. Inside the main hall has a Geeks cross plan and is barrel-vaulted. Complete the complex the cottages and a chapel.
