  • Place where they were imprisoned, and not only that, the accused by the Inquisition. Very interesting and instructive the graffiti left by prisoners. For the rest there's nothing left except a beautiful ceiling in a meeting room.

  • Artwork that is worth a visit, its structure allows also a guided avrie languages. The Palace was Started in the early 14th century and was the great abode of Manfredi Chiaramonte, count of the immense and powerful fief of Modica (nicknamed "Regnum in Kingdom" for its privileges), to which client you have the ceiling of the Sala Magna opera of unquestionable artistic value. The 20th-century restoration has eliminated some basic history of the Palace as the deis egni Scala dei Baroni, the old clock, the platform of the condemned, internal cages, and all that somehow could remember the terrible periods related to the Inquisition During the restoration of the façade were found the tracks left by the heavy cages where they were exposed the heads of barons who rebelled against King Charles V. For all visitors to the beautiful Palermo, go and visit this wonderful building.

  • 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
