Excursion to Graz #2

Eggenberg Palace was built post-1625 by Italian architect and artist Pietro de Pomis as a residence for the imperial governor Hans Ulrich von Eggenberg. The edifice was designed as a huge allegory, a symbolic representation of the universe, where the erudite client set out his notion of an ideal world in an age of chaos and disintegration.
