We are located behind the Teatro Massimo, the largest theater of Italy and third of Europe, from which terrace you can admire the beautiful panorama of the city going from the mountains to the sea.

We are just a few steps far from the entrance (Porta Carini) of one of the historic markets of Palermo, the Capo market or the fish market par excellence, although there is also much more including fragrant spices, fish, meat and local products.
Inside the market you can also come across beautiful churches, such as the Immaculate Conception Church with its impressive frescoes, paintings and polychrome marble.
