  • We did the tour and it was very interesting, I advise you to inform you about timetables for doing it. The visit will allow you to learn about the flora and fauna of the reserve of Ficuzza, another part is devoted to its history and restoration. There are also screens with explanation in English.

  • Just 45 kilometres from Palermo, about 700 metres above sea level, is a small village in the municipality of Ficuzza Corleone, near Palermo. A small settlement situated in the middle of the forest of the same name, whose heart is the Real hunting lodge, a veritable mansion designed and built by King Ferdinand III of Bourbon King of Sicily since 1799. The sovereign's passion for hunting was thus the birth of the first nucleus of the slum. The Royal hunting lodge, built starting in 1802, became a favorite destination for vacationing by the palermitan nobility, especially in the early 20th century, when it was declared a resort montana. The forest that characterizes the area on which it stands the Royal hunting lodge was embodied in the nature reserve of Ficuzza and Cappelliere Woods, Rocca Busambra, Gorgo del Drago, which has an area of 7397 hectares. After long years of neglect the Palace was finally reopened to the public in April 2009. We recommend the guided by very prepared and extremely helpful. Don't miss the video. And icing on the cake, I was there, too, on the occasion of a marriage officiated by a civil ceremony. They don't tell you the magic that I breathed. Beautiful. I highly recommend the Former, the restaurant and hotel with trenino in the path of the old railway line which is also in the middle of the Woods.

  • A visit to the Real hunting lodge is allowed for groups and tour (all free) from staff and good will. Inside over the video that describes the characteristics of the Park, an interesting exhibition of stuffed animals and a visit to the main floor of what remains of the splendour of yesteryear.

  • Great to visit. I recommend it.
  • Beautiful place
  • Former hunting lodge of King Ferdinand I, following the model of the Bourbon holds. Inside there is a nice nature museum. Just a pity that, despite the recent restoration, many of the decorations of the main floors are battered. Furthermore its could be better exploited. Mention of guides and keepers, very prepared and friendly.
