The Garden of Villa Barbarigo is dominated by two intersecting axes, the most prominent runs north to south from the main entrance of the garden to a large flight of stairs. Also within the garden are two pools, linked by the east-west axis, fountains, a labyrinth and several series of paths that disappear into the surrounding hills. Allegorical statues and pavilions pay homage to the Greek figures of Diana the Huntress, Chronos and Aeolus.
