“Artistically it is a very interesting spot.”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

The Covaja Palace, located near the church of St. Catherine, in the famous old town of Taormina, aesthetically very nice especially in the evening with the lighting of Corso Umberto.
Unfortunately I was not able to visit the inside because it was evening and I supposed it was closed already, and frankly I do not even know if you can do it in any case it is really a beautiful piece of architecture that is worth even just admire from the outside and why not, picturing it.

“An attractive palace”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

The mix of styles contributes to its charm: initially an Arab tower, the palace was built over it, in Norman style, with nice double lancet windows (see picture).
It houses the Museum of Art and Folk Traditions.

“A lovely respite from the bling and souvenirs”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is a charming small museum. Best bit was plaques presumably given to churches giving thanks for surviving perilous situations. Each features a saint, and an illustration of the calamity: man thrown from horse which was hit by a train, chap being hit in the eye by a tennis ball, unfortunate lady falling though a ceiling, two chefs being attacked by dogs in their kitchen, and many more. The lighting had failed over this particular section, but I had a small torch and would recommend taking one just in case.
This is a welcome contrast to the shops and crowds of cruise passengers moving about in shoals, following the umbrella.

Reviewed September 19, 2013

Interesting little local museum, 4 or 5 rooms of the first floor of the Palazzo Corvaja. An eclectic mix of local crafts and exhibits dating from XVI to XX century. Small but well worth a visit.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Great Restaurants, beautiful architecture and the most amazing people. The food here is some of the best. We ate in mostly Sicilian Restaurants where the staff and food were excellent.
