Beautiful city palace in Taormina
The Palazzo Corvaia is the most beautiful and best preserved city palace in Taormina. It was built in the late 14th / early 15th Century in the Gothic style and includes an Arab town tower from the 10th Century, which was well integrated into the building. In the vast courtyard, the Sicilian parliament met in 1410 to choose a new king. The first floor now houses the Museo Siciliano di Arte e Tradizioni Popolari, a small ethnographic museum with several exhibits from a local antiques dealer.
Opposite the palace is the small single-nave church of St. Catherine.
