Palazzo Carratelli: historic residence in the center of Amantea

In the historic center of Amantea Palazzo Carratelli dominates the panorama of the city and the sea from above. From the terrace you can admire the ruins of the Castle of Amantea. The historic residence was built in the second half of the 1400s and renovated and enlarged following the 1638 earthquake.
It develops on three levels. On the ground floor, in the center of the façade, there is the majestic entrance door that leads to an internal courtyard around which an open staircase with a simple ramp develops.

History

Among the prestigious guests who attended Palazzo Carratelli, the cardinal of Benevento should be remembered Vincenzo Maria Orsini who later became pope with the name of Benedict XIII and which was received on June 14, 1692. Another important visit had taken place in 1487 when Alfonso II of Aragon, to deal with the military, he went to the home of the Carratelli before retiring to prayer in San Bernardino, seat of the Archconfraternity of the SS. Immaculate.

Severely damaged by the 1905 earthquake, it was rebuilt in compliance with the initial setting by the De Liguori family who had just purchased it. Since 1995 it has been owned by Gianludovico and Camilla de Martino of Montegiordano, who have recently completed its restoration.
