The villa, due to the patronage of the family Manin, is one of the most famous Venetian villas in the region. It was even the seat of the doge and gave hospitality to Napoleone Bonaparte in 1797. Erected by Ludovico Manin I, halfway trough the 17th century, it was later transformed and enlarged by Ludovico II and Ludovico III in the 18th century.
The buildings are arranged in a C-shaped ring: the family residence is the main body to which two barns are attached through portals and big niches to form a horseshoe around the exedra (carried out after 1718) The rear facade opens onto a wide park styled after the French taste, with vast lawns, statues and fountains recalling an Arcadian scenery. Inside, the villa holds some precious 18th century paintings. Today Villa Manin is home to the regional center for Classification and Restoration where a number of temporary exhibitions are mounted.
