Corvaja Palace / Palazzo Corvaja is a medieval Sicilian palace, dating from the 10th century.

It was originally built by the Arabs and takes its name from the Corvaja family, who were amongst Taormina‘s most important aristocrats and owned it from 1538 to 1945.

Corvaja Palace – an impressive example of a medieval palace with Arabic influences 

Corvaja Palace, which is located in Piazza Badia in Taormina, Sicily at right angles to the church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, was originally built in the 10th century by the Arabs who then ruled Taormina, having conquered the town in 902.
It was subsequently added to over various periods up until the 15th century. Its main body is an Arabic tower, and it has an inner courtyard where the Arabic influence can be seen in the arched windows and doorways. A 13th-century staircase leads up to the first floor and an ornamental balcony which overlooks the courtyard.
In 1410, Corvaja Palace housed the Sicilian Parliament. It was renovated in 1945 by Armando Dillo.
