Every city has its flaws… except maybe for Palmanova, Italy. It was designed by artist and architect Vincenzo Scamozzi, in the shape of star. It’s world renown for its unusual, almost perfect shape. There is something inherently appealing about its concentric citadel or fortress plan and structure.

The “star fort” city is pleasing to people mathematically and aesthetically (and even strategically, if you’re thinking about city defense). How could you not stop in this fortress of a city if you were just passing by?

It’s difficult to imagine a place like Palmanova ever having issues with pests or criminals. It looks almost too perfect for that. If you want to see a spectacular result of the renaissance, visit Palmanova.
