The Stable

La scuderia 4 - Fine Art Produzioni

Horses are at the center of everything: this is the only way to understand the meaning of this architecture in the heart of the town, it was not only used to rest the animals of those coming and going to the palace, but was also for the breeding activities of which Prince Branciforte was proud. This also saw the commitment of skilled foreign workers, who created a powerful monument structure, capable of hosting over two hundred horses. The Leonforte Stable is probably the only example in Sicily of such a large building for horse breeding. The facade is one of the backdrops of Piazza Branciforti, an ashlar portal reminiscent of that of the palace. Above the portal, is a marble bust depicting the only effigy of Prince Branciforte, dressed in the armor of the Knights of St. James of the Sword.
