The Bed and Breakfast is housed in a 16th century Historical building called Palazzo Torre Pirajno in the Arab quarter of Kalsa. Inside the Palace there is the Museum of the Maioliche Stanze al Genio (1st floor). The apartment that houses the Bnb (2nd floor) has been completely renovated and the ancient volumes have been restored. All the floors are antique and the rooms have a vaulted ceiling with original frescoes from the 18th and 19th centuries. All rooms are equipped with double bed, balcony, private bathroom with shower, Wifi and TV and windows with double glazing. Some rooms also have a sofa bed. The apartment has been furnished with antique and contemporary furniture. Inside there are several collections that embellish the places. For all guests who love animals there is a terrace that houses some cats. Our guests are offered free admission to the Museum of Majolica
I love historic houses and I believe in hospitality. You will live your stay in an ancient Sicilian house completely restored and completely original. I work at the University of Palermo. I am also the director of the Museo delle Maioliche Stanze al Genio which is located in the same building. I love the Historic Center of Palermo which has within it a number of absolutely extraordinary monuments
The Historic Center of Palermo allows visitors to admire extraordinary testimonies of the past. Palermo certainly deserves a long stay because it is an extraordinarily beautiful city. It is also a city that at sublime levels of beauty alternates atypical levels of degradation for a European capital. The Kalsa district has many places to visit. A few meters away you can visit Palazzo Ajutamicristo, the Botanical Garden and Villa Giulia, the Modern Art Gallery, the Regional Gallery of Palazzo Abatellis, Piazza Marina, Palazzo Mirto, the Serpotta oratorios, the Steri, the church of Gancia. The cathedral is a 10-minute walk away. The Sea is just a few hundred meters away and the beaches can be reached easily
