Set in the natural amphitheatre of the Euganean Hills, Castle Catajo - open for tours, receptions and special events - is a Venetian Villa disguised as a castle. With 350 rooms, huge indoor and outdoor spaces and monumental grounds with ancient trees, you will feel like you are in a Villa which is truly one-of-a-kind.
As soon as you open the door to the Villa, you will understand why Castle Catajo is considered the “Queen of the Euganean Hills”. Six magnificent reception rooms make up the main floor of the house, decorated with 16th century frescoes painted by Giovanni Battista Zelotti. Broad panoramic terraces next to the reception rooms allow you to bathe in the breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside with big windows that fill the interior with light. Every part of Castle Catajo reflects its centuries of history, the illustrious families who have lived here and its status as a villa, ducal palace and imperial residence.
In the huge grounds of the Castle, dotted with pools of water, collections of citrus trees and both ancient and modern rose gardens, there are also some of the first magnolias ever imported into Europe from America.
