Liechtenstein Museum #2

This baroque garden palace houses the Liechtenstein Museum which shows a large part of the Princely House of Liechtenstein´s baroque art collection. The palace was constructed during the reign of Prince Johann Adam Andreas I of Liechtenstein (1657-1712) who was one of the greatest builders of his day. He assigned the planning to the Italian architect Domenico Egidio Rossi who designed a real palazzo instead of an airy summer house. This photo shows the garden facade of the palace.
