CASTELBUONO

 

Castelbuono, Sicily Luxury hotels

accommodation name

There's an Abbey on the beautiful hills surrounding Castelbuono where each stone has a piece of history to tell. A history consisting of hard-working and hospitable monks, of long peaceful sunny days, of influential abbots with famous names, a history spanning a millennium. Today, that Abbey has been restored to its ancient and noble splendour and is now a Relais with an intriguing charm and poignant beauty. It is surrounded by greenery and fertile lands - the sea is so near it seems to fill half the sky.

Castelbuono

Castelbuono is a town and commune in the province of Palermo, Sicily (southern Italy). It is especially famous for the castle which its name derives, and around which the city grew up in the 14th century. The construction of the Castle mixes Arab-Norman features with others typical of the castles built during the Hohenstaufen rule of southern Italy: the cube shape recalls Arabic architecture; the square towers, although incorporated into those of the fašade, reflect Norman architectural style, as also the battlements; and the round tower recalls aspects of Frederick II's times architecture.
