Palazzo Chiaramonte-Steri

Palazzo Chiaramonte-Steri is one of the most important historical palaces in Palermo.
It is located at Piazza Marina, a square in the historic centre of the city, known for the biggest Ficus macrophylla in Europe.
The palace was built starting from 1307 and, originally, was the house of the Chiaramonte family, from which it took the name. In the 15th century the palace became the house of the Sicilian viceroys; later it was home to the Royal Customs and, from 1600 to the end of the 18th century, it housed the Holy Inquisition Tribunal.
Palazzo Chiaramonte-Steri was restored in the 20th century and since 1984 is the most famous building of the University of Palermo, house of the Rector’s office and of the famous painting “La Vucciria” by Renato Guttuso.
