Four Corners (Quattro Canti) Tours and Activities

star-5
775 Reviews

Some Italian piazzas are picturesque squares where locals stroll in the evenings, or watch their children play, or gossip with the neighbors. And sometimes, as is the case with Palermo’s Four Corners (Quattro Canti), they’re busy intersections.

Despite the fact that the Quattro Canti - also known as the Piazza Vigilena - is an intersection that’s often full of cars, it’s still one of the attractions visitors seek out in the city. This is largely because of the four buildings that sit at the four corners of the intersection - “quattro canti” means “four corners” - which are Baroque buildings dating from the early 17th century. The four buildings are almost identical, save for a few details.

Each of the four buildings is slightly curved, giving the piazza a rounded footprint, and there are statues in niches that represent the four seasons, the four Spanish kings of Sicily, and the four patron saints of Palermo. Each building is connected to a different Palermo neighborhood, and the patron saint on that building is the patron of that neighborhood.

Palermo tour and wine is a combination of a light visit of the city center with some relaxing moments and tasting of food and Sicilian wines. This combination is very appreciated in summer: we have the possibility to start the visit around 5.30 pm. But it is very relaxing also in winter time. The tasting includes 2 glasses of wine or 2 cocktails each and a selection of typical Sicilian appetizers
