The city of Bagheria is a must-see for anybody visiting Palermo or the surrounding areas, thanks to its idyllic location on a gradual slope between the sea and Mount Catalfano. Originally known as Bayharia by the Phoenician immigrants who arrived in the 8th century B.C., Bagheria remained largely a forgotten farming area for centuries until it was developed by aristocratic families from Palermo who wanted to escape the heat and congestion of the city. Today, it has regained prominence, thanks to the Italian film industry, as well as Hollywood (you may recognise it from The Godfather!).

Things to do in Bagheria

Visit the bizarre Villa Palagonia

Bagheria's most renowned mansion, Villa Palagonia, was constructed in the early 700s by Ferdinando Francesco Gravina, Prince of Palagonia. Visitors were drawn to it by the strange scenery, people, and architecture, including Goethe, who wrote about it in his works. Its park contains over 60 statues of caricatures of men, which add to the opulence of the setting. Make sure to check out the Hall of Mirrors, which has a mirror-covered ceiling and several busts and marble statues adorning the chamber.

Explore the Museum of Contemporary Art

The beautiful, little-known museum of contemporary art in Bagheria occupies an 18th-century mansion 13 kilometres east of Palermo. The museum's collection contains the lone sculpture by Bagheria-born artist Domenico Quattrochiocchi, as well as pieces by his contemporaries Pippo Rizzo, Lia Pasqualino Noto, and Carlo Levi. The mausoleum of Guttuso, composed of lapis lazuli and created by Giacomo Manzù, is located in the garden. Bagheria railway station is a 600-meter walk from the museum.
