It's wonderful the beauty of the decorations of this ancient fortified palace in Cefalù.
It was built in the 13th century by the Ventimiglia family to use it as a winter residence.
It remained to this family until 1603, when it passed to the Dominican friars.
Once the palace was much larger and had a large internal courtyard.
Inside there is a cistern probably from Roman times.
The walls of the quadrangular tower, up to a certain height, are from the Norman period, and rest on some Greek era remains.
The part of the building decorated with the two-tone stone is instead of Chiaramontana era; there are two mullioned windows and a large and wonderful trifora.
Under the palace has been found finds of the Hellenistic age.
