Palazzo dei Normanni

Highly recommended
The Norman palace is located at the exact centre of the first urban site. In 938, for security reasons, the emir abandoned the qsar to move to Kalsa. The palace became a royal residence once again under the Normans who enlarged and embellished it. After a further extended period of abandon and dilapidation, the palace was restored under the 17C Spanish viceroys and today it is the home of the Sicilian Parliament.
