Description

An exterior view of the Palazzo Valmarana. A stone wall is in front of the property. The facade as shown has three stories. The bottom level is in the midst of repair. Wooden beams span the width of the windows. The second story contains a series of windows framed by architectural elements, such as engaged Corinthian columns. At the base of the windows are false balconies. The upper level contains a series of smaller, square windows. On the roof, statues are stationed at intervals corresponding to the placement of the engaged columns.
