Palazzo Biscari is a gem of the Sicilian Baroque style.
The imperial baroque residence founded inside the fifteenth century city walls of Catania, Palazzo Biscari is the most charming and well kept palace made during the Sicilian Baroque period. Ignatius Paternò Castello, the fifth prince of Biscari, dreamed of this palace for so long and began its construction in 1702 after his father bought property and its surrounding grounds. The heart of the palace is formed by its halls, capable of holding special events, meetings, concerts, and events with a capacity of 350 people. Its walls display important paintings, restored to their original status after the last earthquake. The left side of the palace is already made of private apartments where some members of the family still reside.
