SICILIAN BAROQUE BETWEEN THE LAVA AND THE SEA
The 30th of January 1689 is the date on which several Sicilian master craftsmen were assigned by the Prince of Palagonia, Ignazio Sebastiano Gravina Cruyllas, to build the Fondaco dell’Acquicella and the residence of the Prince himself.
After a long period of substantial disuse, in 1971 the Murabito family decided to share the beauty of the castle with visitors wishing to discover a wild corner of Sicily, set between the lava of Mt. Etna and the blue Ionian Sea.
The rooms are all finely decorated in Sicilian baroque style, enclosing all the warmth of ancient buildings.
Castello San Marco is a place that tells of an illustrious past, illuminated by warm, diffused lighting that caresses all the elegant furnishings.
