Home to kings, queens, and sentinels of the city, the Loggia was the privileged stage of the tales that changed the face of Palermo. This historic quarter takes its name from the Castello a Mare, the favourite fortress of King Frederick II and his court, today the nerve centre of Palermo’s culture as an arena for concerts and events.
Elegant and sumptuous, the room is a luxurious home with precious and refined details. The four-poster bed and the natural light from the windows give a magical aura to this discreet corner of paradise that opens directly onto the inner garden.
Once surrounded by gardens and fountains, Cuba stood in the middle of a Jannat al-ard, the garden paradise of King William II. The great Arab palace, adorned with muqarnas, was the pavilion of delights in which the king and his Court rested and spent their hours.
In one of the most spacious rooms of the B&B Sant’Agostino, you can spend your stay between large spaces and corners reserved for you. With the beautiful vaulted roof that overlooks the room and the small private terrace, you will really feel like a king.
The chosen, the pure, the Kalsa still retains its name from the time when it represented the centre of power of the Arab conquests in Sicily. Home of the Emir and his ministers, the fortified citadel stretched for several kilometres along the city’s coastline, as does today’s district, now surrounded by the Walls of the Evil ones magnificent buildings with an oriental flavour that has sprung up over the centuries.
This room represents, in its small size, the legacy coming from that wealth thanks to its large spaces and large shower cabin. From its privileged position, two private balconies allow you to admire the surroundings and part of the magnificent old town.
“Il Genio” Room
Emblem of spirituality and protector of places, the Genius lociis the undisputed symbol of the city of Palermo. The Genius, from above, observed a history of conquests and cultural exchanges, protecting the inhabitants of Palermo and foreigners, who came from all over the world to embellish it with new treasures.
With a window overlooking the garden and direct access to the terrace, this two-storey room will give you a memorable following the footsteps of the Genius.
In the Arabic City where al Qasr (the Cassaro) led to the sea, joining the ancient part with Neapolis, Kemonia embraced the city to the east, helping to create the earthly paradise of citrus fruits, palms and olive trees that is the Golden Basin. Today, it still flows between the qanats of underground Palermo, like the one that crosses the splendid Scirocco Room.
A bright room, with blue walls and direct access to the garden: a small paradise where you can spend a relaxing stay among the scents of fruits and flowers and the silence that envelops it.
Below the palaces and villas of Palermo, the caves dug into the rock allowed the nobles to protect themselves from the summer heat brought by the sirocco. Since the Middle Ages, the small underground oases where fresh water springs and currents allowed the feet to cool down and bathe were called the Chambers of the Scirocco.
A room as red as the summer heat and with a large bathroom with bathtub where you can cool off after a long walk through the streets of Palermo. This room is ideal to spend a quiet stay and enjoy a few moments of relaxation in the garden of the bed and breakfast.
