Villa Tauro

Villa Tauro, also known as Villa delle Centenère from the ancient name of the place in which it stands, is a typical example of a seventeenth-century building harmoniously inserted into the natural context of the Belluno Dolomites.


The villa consists of a central body flanked by a rustic wing and enriched with a garden and private chapel.
The front of the mansion is visible from the road and you can see it at the end of a long “Carpenada” (avenue lined with beeches) featuring an ashlar entrance and a balcony with a three-light window surmounted with another mullioned window and a tympanum embellished with three statues and two octagonal-shaped chimneys.


In the second half of the 18th century Count Francesco Tauro, collected a series of works of art of different kinds including some archaeological pieces that now adorn the portico. Worth of note a memorial stone, dated 47 A.D., and discovered in Cesiomaggiore in 1786, which signed the “Via Claudia Augusta Altinate”, a Roman road which connected the Danube to the Adriatic sea up to Altino and that is now emphasized thanks to an interesting cycle route.

Outdoor spaces

The back of the villa has a large lawn surrounded by statures that invite visitors to reach the private chapel built by Count Francesco Tauro, probably at the end of the 17th century.
