Place of Interest

Palazzolo Acreide

Baroque town in the Hyblean Mountains

Palazzolo Acreide is one of those cities that were destroyed by the devastating earthquake in 1693 and then completely restored in Baroque style. The previous city Akrai was founded in 664 B.C. as the first daughter city of Syracuse and expanded in the 12th Century by the Normans and renamed Palazzolo. The beautiful baroque town on the western edge of the Hyblean Mountains provides a good base for hiking and exploring the Monti Iblei.

Attractions in Palazzolo Acreide

In the main square of the city, the Piazza del Municipio, there are the classical town hall and the church of San Sebastiano. From the main square the Corso Vittorio Emanuele leads through the Baroque Palazzo Judica, with its playful exterior, and the Chiesa dell’Immacolata, to the Piazza Roma. Here it’s worth visiting the church of San Paolo with its fantastic façade columns and sculptures, including the Bell Tower. Also worth seeing in Palazzolo Acreide is the church Santissima Annunziata with its façade and its Corinthian columns and the Casa Museo with exhibits of rural and civic worlds.
