This palace has a beautiful, typically medieval façade.
It was built in 1397 by Marciotta Mergulese.
In the fifteenth century, Queen Constance of Aragon donated it to Filippo Montalto.
In 1837 it was used as a hospital for cholera, later, in 1854, it hosted the "Daughters of Charity".
The palace is in Gothic-Chiaramonte style.
It has an ogival portal surmounted by a small kiosk containing a Latin inscription indicating the year of foundation and the builder; a little higher up, three windows: a three lights window and a beautiful two lights window, with decorated archivolts and elegant spiral columns, and a single light window.
