Villa Niscemi is a villa in Palermo. It is located in the north-western part of the city, near La Favorita Park.
The villa has been the main residence of the noble Valguarnera family for about three centuries. The origins of the building date back to the 16th century, but the villa has taken the current aspect during the late 18th century. In fact, at that time, the Valguarnera family reconfigured the existing structure, by giving it a more Baroque physiognomy and enriching it of paintings, frescoes and other artworks.

A splendid villa inhabited for three centuries by the Valguarnera di Niscemi family. Now belongs to the City of Palermo, it can be visited on Sundays.

An impressive villa that looks like a castle. No wonder the mayor of Palermo has a second office here.

Un piccolo paradiso nel caos cittadino. Il parco potrebbe essere un po' più curato così come la zona dove vivono i tanti animali. Molto bella e ben curata l'area gioco rivolta ai bambini. La Villa ospita poi tantissime iniziative culturali e mostre. Da non perdere una visita al "Piano nobile" che, sebbene ospiti gli uffici del Sindaco di Palermo, è quasi sempre aperto e visitabile: un tuffo nel passato con arredi e decori storici ancora intatti e abbastanza ben conservati.
