Villa Lazara in Conselve was built in the 15th century by the old and powerful Lazara family, but its current looks are the result of important restoration and extension works done in the following centuries, when the high finial on the Eastern façade and the pronaos on the northern side were added. The villa has a square plan and a protruding portico on the façade overlooking the road. The two side façades are symmetrical and feature a Greek-cross plan; the middle section is one-storey higher. Over the centuries, Villa Lazara has welcomed important guests, including Henry III of Valois who stayed here in 1574, one year before becoming King of France, Saint Gregorio Barbarigo was here in 1683, when he was bishop of Padua, and Cardinal Carlo Rezzonico, who would then become Pope Clement XIII was a guest in 1748. After being bought by Father Francesco Beggiato in 1905, the villa became a parish property, and it has been governed by the Canossian Fathers since 1927.
