Deserted Europe: 20 Hauntingly Abandoned Buildings Article by Urbanist, filed under Abandoned Places in the Architecture category. (Article information and images provided by Bart of Urban Travel) It is one thing to think about visiting that haunting abandoned building on the edge of town – but it is quite another thing to actually brave not one but hundreds of deserted places like Bart of Urban Travel.

Here are 20 factories, mines, castles, churches, homes, estates, prisons, military and state buildings from all over East and West Europe visited, photographed and documented by Bart on his travels. Abandoned Factories and Industry Buildings Rope and Hemp Factory in Italy: This was once the largest such factory in Europe, dating back to 1840.

Moses Bridge / RO&AD Architecten

It dates from the 17th century but fell into disrepair in the 19th century. When the water line was finally restored, an access bridge across the the moat of one of the fortresses, Fort de Roovere, was needed. This fort now has a new, recreational function and lies on several routes for cycling and hiking. It is, of course, highly improper to build bridges across the moats of defense works, especially on the side of the fortress the enemy was expected to appear on.

The bridge can’t be seen from a distance because the ground and the water come all the way up to its edge. Plataforma Arquitectura. TURA Architecture Tourism. ArchDaily. The villas by Andrea Palladio. Most people who intend to visit the Palladian villas go to the Riviera del Brenta for the now traditional boat tour, to sail the river Brenta upstream from Venice to Padua or the other way round, and to stop along the riverside to admire the marvellous buildings the Venetian noblemen had built.

The villas by Andrea Palladio

Not everybody knows, though, that most of those villas are called "Palladian" not because Palladio had them built, but because they are inspired by the principles and canons of that architecture which expresses itself best in those villas Palladio really had built, two centuries before, mainly in the province of Vicenza. Thus, the study and the discovery of the villa can not go without a visit to the province, where Palladio left his most substantial part of his heritage, which, over the centuries, has inspired not only the villas on the river Brenta, but also the Anglo-Saxon, the French and the European world generally and stretches also overseas.
