Butera 28 Apartments are situated in a unique location, Palazzo Lanza Tomasi, an 18th century listed building in the Kalsa quarter, the heart of the historic centre of Palermo. The Palazzo faces the wonderful bay of Palermo and was built atop the 16th century Spanish city walls. It remains the only lived-in palazzo in Palermo overlooking the sea.
The Palazzo was once the property of Giulio Fabrizio Tomasi di Lampedusa, the Prince astronomer who would become the model for the main character in The Leopard. This world-famous novel was written by the Prince’s great-grandson, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. The Palazzo was the author’s last home until his death in 1957, and is now the home of his adoptive son who has lovingly restored it to its former splendour.
