La Casa del Marchese a Piazza Armerina

The House of the Marquis is a former stately home inside the 15th century Demani dei Trigona di Canicarao building. Recently restored, this holiday apartment in the historical centre of Piazza Armerina, offers guests the charm of a past time and history while retaining modern comforts. It boasts spacious and bright rooms with influences from the Sicilian art nouveau and other artistic styles, embellished by the passing of time creating a perfect ambience from which to immerse yourself in the local culture. It is composed of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious living room, a kitchen and a terrace full of sunlight for the most of the day. The apartment also has a corner for relaxing and reading and a room used as an atelier (artists’ workshop) for those who enjoy art and handcraft.
The apartment is an ideal location for a comfortable stay whether it be for a holiday or to study, for writing a book in Sicily or as an artistic residence in a quiet town full of art and history.

The Palace, The City and The Surrounding Area
The main floor is characterised by its elegant balconies and on the central one there is an eagle with a shield which is the symbol of the Trigona family, the nobility of Piazza Armerina and today symbol of the city. The historical importance of the Trigona di Canicarao palace is linked to the monumental importance of Piazza Armerina, which was at peak splendour in medieval times. During the time of count Roger the Norman, the city was instrumental in the historical events of Sicily, and in 1296 Federico III of Aragon summoned the Parliament to decide the war against his brother Giacomo and Carlo II of Angiò, who were starting to dominate the island.

Piazza Armerina, city of art, embellished by a harmony of different styles, captivates the visitors even with the pleasure of a simple stroll through the medieval quarters that retain the charm of a bygone era, with their small alleys and the innumerable churches and palaces.

There are many beauties to enjoy around the town: the woods, the natural reserve of Ronza, lake Oliva, March Mountain (Montagna di Marzo), Pergusa and Rossomanno Grottascura Bellia natural reserves.
However, above all there is the Villa Romana del Casale, from the 4th century B.C. (Unesco world heritage site since 1997), which stands out for its innumerable mosaics, representing hunting scenes and mythological characters. The representations of scenes describing the deeds of Hercules, Daphne, and other characters, together with the colourful collection of millions of mosaic tiles, come together to form something of priceless artistic value, which can easily lead us In Search Of Lost Time.


Don’t forget to visit the nearby town of Caltagirone, the Mediterranean capitol of ceramics, or to visit the Museum and archaeological sites of Aidone and Morgantina.
So…welcome to this comfortable house of charm…
