Castello Chiaramonte di Favara


Sicily for free Castles, Fortresses & Towers in Sicily

The Castello Chiaramonte was built by Frederick II Chiaramonte around 1280.
To make it more secure and impregnable the manor was originally surrounded by a fortified wall which is no more existant. 
The large entrance portal leads into the central courtyard. The kitchens at the sides of the entrance were used as jails from the 16th to the 18th century. A wide stairway leads to the main floor, the residential area of the ancient feudal lords, whose rooms are connected by a walkway.
A beautiful portal leads into a small private chapel which is the most interesting part of the castle from the point of view of art. A narrow staircase leads to the terrace from where you can enjoy impressive views.
Today the castle is the seat of the town and used for cultural events. Interesting is the permanent exhibition of the local painter Pasquale Farruggia.
