  • It was the first site I saw during my visit to Martina Franca. I wasn't aware of this Palace so that with my girlfriend we wondered what it was about. Huge building with a beautiful façade typical of the area. Recommended to fans of architecture and photography.

  • Really worth it on the first floor the wall and ceiling paintings. A large part of the lyric of the Valle d'Itria festival takes place in the courtyard of the Palazzo.

  • I don't know the history of this building, but the name and the frescoes (quite fascinating that a "mock tent") paint a noble past ... often hosts exhibitions

  • Very impressive palace. Entrance is free. Highly recommended for those who love wall paintings.
  • Very disappointing, half of the tour is filled with absolute rubbish abstract paintings or whatever they are with not even a signature so you don't even know who's that from. The better part maybe is for the paintings on the walls but even there most of them are badly remade and the ages are incorrected. Very naive paintings. Not something really that great....Not recommended
  • Oh dear! The temporary exhibition of rather dreadful paintings did not inspire, at all. The presence of an attendant, breathing down our necks, didn't help the appreciation. The 'state rooms' are lavishly painted with, what are claimed to be 18th century paintings - nothing could be further from the truth! Whatever dates have been scrawled on them, they are most certainly not - they may have been painted by a blind, primary-school child (no offence intended) but they are not highly professional and, judging by the pigments and style, they may, may, be 19th century at the earliest. Walking through the rooms, one has the feeling of a great and important place, and a cursory glance at the walls 'tips a hat' to that, but no more than that. However, there is one room which does have really authentic 18th century wall painting - it's on the right, just half way through the exhibition rooms - dash in and see something quite special.
  • Definitely worth a visit, maybe with a guide ...
