Work on the construction of this complex began in 1652 and involved the demolition of many buildings to create the necessary space. This changed the district planning, that slowly encouraged the population to move in this renewed neighborhood. The Jesuits occupied it until 1860, when they were expelled from the island, and became part of the Italian state assets.
The entrance leads to the large square courtyard, where you can appreciate the size of the building that now house various museums and, a reproduction of the Loreto’s Holy House.
Also worth mentioning, the Mafia Museum , recently built.
With one ticket you can visit both the museums and the Castle premises.
