Palace of Princes Tagliavia-Aragona-Pignatelli
The palace of princes Tagliavia-Aragona-Pignatelli was built on the remains of the pre-existing thirteenth century castle, the features of which were kept until the mid-sixteen hundreds. It was later updated accordingly in the typical style of Baroque palaces. At the end of the seventeenth century, when the Princes of Castelvetrano moved to Palermo and Naples, the palace entered a period of slow and relentless decline. After the war and until the end of the nineteen seventies it was inhabited by a number of families, until it was put up for sale by the heirs when the last princess died. The main entrance faces the modern Carlo d’Aragona Tagliavia piazza. Crossing the entrance hall you enter a large atrium encircled by arcades that open up to the storerooms, the stables and the three stairways that led to the living quarters on the main floor.
