Palermo Off The Beaten Path: 27 reviews and 35 photos

  An exhibition space

This fine building of 1750 must have originally been a palace, although poorhouses were often lavish in those days. (no further info). This one is used for temporary exhibits as was the case when we went there to catch up with an elusive Antonello which usually is in Cefalu. The show was modest as to quality of content. Anyway it is long gone. Luckily it is near the Catacombe del Cappuccini, so if there is a reason to go here, you can combine the visits. Otherwise this picture is the only sight. The address is Corso Calatafimi 217.
