Fodor's Review

One of the most impressive and historically significant Neoclassical buildings in Italy, the Tempio Canoviano was designed by Canova in 1819 and finished in 1830, incorporating motifs from the rotunda of the Roman Pantheon and the pronaos (inner portico) of the Parthenon. The church contains several works by Canova, including his tomb, along with paintings by Luca Giordano, Palma il Giovane, and il Pordenone. The Tempio is in the village of Possagno, 16 km (10 miles) north of Asolo.
