Historic Architecture, Palaces, Architecture, Interesting Places

Palazzo Biscari is a private palace in Catania, Sicily, southern Italy.

It was built by will of the Paternò Castello family, the princes of Biscari, starting from the late 17th century, lasting for much of the following century, after the devastations of the 11 January 1693 earthquake. The new palace was built directly against the city walls (Charles V's walls), which had partially withstood the earthquake.
