    Place strategic recommended and not to be missed! The guided tour deserves to be made and followed: the girl was super prepared and available, showed the building in its entirety narrating his story. Also there was possible to visit with her prisons of the Inquisition, in which the skilful restoration work has brought to light the frescos painted by prisoners. If you find yourself in Palermo passes absolutely!

    It's that little bit extra that I expect when visiting a historic building. The Inquisition also in Palermo there went berserk ... for most was the Spanish, then even more strict, diligent and perverted than Italiot-Pontifical. Here he not only touched but reached the craze and perversion ... and the traces that remain despite the fires and to mysteries confirm. Excellent guided tour that helps grasp the much that the eye can not immediately grasp ... Original of its kind the prison of the Inquisition--a subject on which there is a lot to think about. Also because there are still today Inquisitions "elegant" which still continue to operate around and beside us.

    I don't particularly like the guided tours, especially to places that I would visit while enjoying every detail and without undergo roadmaps taxes ... Fortunately the guide who escorted us (Alessio) was really prepared and very willing to meet our demands. The conditions were far from encouraging: at the ticket office told that the visits could be made only with accompanying Guide and that the explanation would be in English. Other goodies: awaiting the start of the tour, you cannot stand in the yard in front of the entrance, ticket discounts are provided for teachers, students, journalists, architects, but not for archaeologists and the Armory is not open to the public. Too bad.

  • Excellent guided tour of this magnificent palazzo and former inquisition prison.
  • So interesting. Struck up a rapor with the guide- who spoke English! Fascinating. Highly recommended.
  • i strongly suggest to take a guided tour of the prison to learn interesting facts about the Inquisition in Palermo
  • Another excellent attraction, a noble residence, used by the Barons to plot against the King, then used as the headquarters of the Inquisition.
  • Amazing trees! Must see
