Corvaja palace (Palazzo Corvaja)

Arab foundations and courtyard; Gothic-Catalan windows and portal; Norman Parliament room (the Sicilian parliament sat here in the 15C); one 13C wing, and another from the 15C: everyone contributed to build this palace which has been renovated after a long period of neglect. It now houses the Taormina Tourism Office and the Museo Siciliano which displays pupi (traditional puppets) and richly decorated Sicilian carts.
