I recently purchased a second home in Bagheria and decided to scope out the city. This villa must have been something in the 1700 and 1800's. The "monsters" are worth seeing and the Villa is a quick walk through. My hope is that the family...More

We had a pleasant time as we strolled the grounds in the late afternoon. It was easy to imagine what it must have been like to live in this place years ago.

Hello, The Villa is beautiful but there is no explication about its history etc, it's a pity ... Moroever, the flyer in French that they give you is full of mistakes. It's a shame for a paid visit ... So you go there and just...More

If you want to visit somewhere completely different this is the place! A crumbling ( certainly) gem in the centre of a lovely little town. The legend has it that the original owner was a hunchback whose wife took many lovers. In revenge he commissioned...More

A very, very long time ago it was a unique and delightful palace. But now it is a complete ruin. A very sad picture of shameful neglect and lack of care. There are to see only three rooms in a terrible state, destroyed and devastated....More

If you are looking for something a little different than the usual visit to church's and grand palaces, then a visit to this crumbling sandstone villa is worth a detour. The palace was built by Ferdinand, Prince of Palagonia who took revenge of his wives...More

First this is located right off the main square which trip advisor makes you think it is not. It was worth the trip thru town and the crazy streets. Loved the statues and the inside of the palace. It was run down but still very...More

Quite interesting and original place. Probably, the most famous landmark in Bagheria. Unusual interior of the premises where access is open to visitors. Several spoils the impression that the villas are situated around a modern building.
