Approaching the Temple of The Four Winds
Approaching the Temple of The Four Winds
Approaching through Ray Wood in wintertime. Leafless trees allow a glimpse of the pavilion, (across the gridline).
The pavilion, situated at the SE corner of Ray Wood, was designed by Vanbrugh in 1724. The cube-shaped building, with dome and porticos is partly modelled on Palladio's famous 16th century Villa Rotonda in Vicenza. The interiors were finally decorated with scagliola in 1738 by the stuccoist Francesco Vassalli.
The temple, with its fine views, was used as a place for refreshment and reading.
