Nice place To be
It's a really nice place to visit
Very nice place to hold a party :)
It was built by will of the Paternò Castello family, the princes of Biscari, starting from the late 17th century, lasting for much of the following century, after the devastations of the 11 January 1693 earthquake. The new palace was built directly against the city walls (Charles V's walls), which had partially withstood the earthquake.
Very nice place for hosting lunches and dinners. This is a former home of a prince. Visiting the main building, you are able to see at least four halls, which are decorated with old paintings and furnitures from past centuries. If you are planning to set or attending an event here, then you should know in advance that there is no air conditioning inside. It could be particularly painful when there are more than 150 people inside.
Very different palace. At first quite dark, not glamourous at all until one enters the dance hall. Beautiful, unusual staircase on one side.
