  • It is now the seat of the Rectorate of the University and contains within it interesting environments for the various epochs of the troubled history of Palermo. By the Normans to the Aragonese until being the seat of the Court of the Holy Office. The writings on the walls of several cells where prisoners were kept, contrary to the rulers of the time 8The appellants arranged for six hundred). Well worth a visit.
