Villa Cemento

This villa is one of the most appealing homes in the area. It's really astonishing. From the outside but also from the inside. During my visit is was not difficult to imagine how beautiful it should have been at the time.

A wealthy entrepreneur had it build in at the end of the 19th-century. He built it for its wife. As a wedding gift. The villa was also named after her.

The most impressive about this build is that not a single stone brick is used to construct it. It’s base almost is completely made by using cement, the flagship product of the family business. They were real innovators. They even won numerous international awards with their innovative use of cement.

Besides the villa, a beautiful winter garden was located. The number of decorative details matched that of the villa. Almost overgrown by vegetation on the outside. An incredible sight.

The villa had two small towers on each side of the building. With the top part fully covered in stained glass.
