  • Beautiful villa Baroque art in the heart of palermo, at the entrance there is a wide avenue lined with Lake suite and also a children's playground. The villa is beautiful in all its aspects you can breathe the air, there is also a terrace overlooking the main boulevard that recalls the old days where the days passed slowly. You should also visit with children and for them it will definitely be a fun day.

  • Historic House very interesting especially for original furnishings, beautiful fireplace in the entrance (which we were fortunate enough to see on) and for the garden.

  • The villa has been, for at least three centuries, the main residence of the family Valgauarnera of Niscemi and takes its name from them. In 1987, the descendants of the family sold the complex to the municipality of Palermo who made it his headquarters. The main part of the structure was built on two floors and retains traces of existing structures dating from the late seventeenth century. Inside, furniture, paintings, furnishings evoke the charm of a lost time, although the most important furnishings were taken away from the villa before the sale. Among the works are: the large stone fireplace designed by the architect Giovan Battista in the second half of the 800 P and the fresco depicting Charlemagne granted the coat of arms of Valguarnera.

  • A splendid villa inhabited for three centuries by the Valguarnera di Niscemi family. Now belongs to the City of Palermo, it can be visited on Sundays.
  • An impressive villa that looks like a castle. No wonder the mayor of Palermo has a second office here.
  • Very nice location for a banquet. Interesting old building with flair.
  • beautiful spacious villa. Inside feels like a castle. beautiful spacious gardens with pond and birds
  • It is the first time staying at this villa and I was fascinated. The structure that dates back to 1700 is perfectly preserved and well maintained both in the garden and indoors is used by the Mayor for political meetings even international in nature and have attended an event with dinner in this villa was a real pleasure. The interiors are reminiscent of the Palace of the Sun King and was created by Prince Niscemi in 1700 but are perfectly preserved. A true hunting that brings the atmosphere of 700. Recommended
