Villa D’Este, was built in 1550 by Pirro Ligorio for Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este on the site of the Benedictine monastery. It was intended for entertaining and contains lavishly frescoed reception rooms. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful Renaissance gardens in Italy, the villa later became an early model for the development of European gardens. There are about 500 fountains on the site.
