Palazzo Trigona

Noto is an extraordinary example of one of the cities completely reconstructed in the meridian baroque style after the devastating 1693 earthquake.  Palazzo Trigona is one of the most interesting examples of private construction in the city, as it presents a typical “U” design used by Noto’s residence, where the front of the building is aligned with the main street or Corso.  In order to access the building one must enter through the main entrance located on the main street and then proceed up a monumental staircase to the main floor where there are a series of rooms decorated with grotesque vaults that are unique to Noto’s palatial architecture.
