The Castle of Chiaramonte

On a valley looking to the homonymous river, Favara has still a medieval planning, with simple stone houses, small avenues alternating to stairs and pebble streets.


The original settlement was around the medieval castle, built by Federico II Chiaramonte in the 13th century.


The castle is quadrangular and lightened by tall and long mullioned windows.

The castle

In the inside court-yard there is a finely decorated staircase,taking upstairs to a lobby framed by a door with a barrel vault and a large mullioned window.

Outside you will notice an ogival portal decorated by a triple arched lintel and a Romanesque style architrave.

From here you reach the annexed chapel, surmounted by a Gothic arch and covered by a splendid hemispherical Arab dome.

Just off the castle you can enjoy a wonderful view, looking to the fertile valley beneath.
