  • Along corso Calatafimi is a little gem unknown to most tourists visiting Palermo. 18th century Church, porch and small internal cloister. In fact the correct name would be Albergo delle Povere, because halfway ' 800, once built, the building was used as a shelter for women. The visit is free, but often also hosts temporary exhibitions. If you find yourselves below traditional animated nativity Christmas don't waste small, really delicious. Ideal for a peaceful break. Shame about the unwillingness of some orderlies.

  • Real Albergo dei Poveri, a beautiful complex of Palermo. Beautiful architectural style and its gardens

  • Along the road from downtown leads to Cuba, we run into this building from unusual name and intrigued we enter to take a look. Inside there is a beautiful courtyard surrounded by a portico on one side and a 17th century Church. The ladies (all three very nice) that act as caretakers/guides tell us that the Church was founded by the Prince of Palagonia in order to welcome the poor, disabled, homeless and orphaned and later, at the end of 1800, was used only to shelter feminine and the name was changed to Albergo delle Povere, as you can read on the façade of the building. The visit is free and only takes a few minutes. It is not a milestone, but it's worth it to see something outside of the classics tour and that not everybody knows (even many of palermitani).

  • Beautiful.
  • Looks nice
  • Historic site outside nice with a very nice garden, but of open has almost nothing!!! Historic church closed to tourists and all rooms that really matter are also closed to tourists. Yet should contain historical relics concerning even the Bourbon King but unfortunately like I said everything is closed ... A real shame for the history of our land!

  • A nice place to visit. There is a lot of art to be seen. Among the Museum inside the Church and outside spaces full of green you can go from seeing some beautiful works to relax amidst beautiful Abbey
