The town was founded in 1637 by Carlo Tomasi, Prince of Lampedusa, and an ancestor of the writer Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa (1869-1957). The latter wrote the famous novel Il Gattopardo (The Leopard), which was published in 1958 and made into a film by Luchino Visconti.

Tourist attractions Palma di Montechiaro : Things to see and do

  • Main church (Chiesa madre)

    Piazza Duomo I - 92020 Palma di Montechiaro

    In front of the church is a large staircase. It has an attractive Baroque facade in white limestone flanked by two graceful bulbous campaniles. The Tomasi palace or "Palace of the Holy Duke" stands beside the staircase.

  • Montechiaro Castle

    Rte de Marina di Palma I - 92020 Palma di Montechiaro

    A visit to Montechiaro castle is justified by its location. This austere 14C building stands proudly on a rocky outcrop which plunges down into the sea.
