An antique dwelling calling to mind the sea fragrance and the life experience of those fishermen who used to live here since the nineteenth century, located in the heart of La Kalsa
La casa del pescatore is an authentic sicilian house, of which name comes from the fishermen lores and tradition. It is located in front of the Church of Spasimo and few steps away from the Palazzo Abatellis, in the heart of the historic arab area of La Kalsa. The house is enriched with local handicrafts such as the fish-shaped credenza made of original materials from a fishing boat and the handmade potteries in the kitchen, which recall the sea waves. Next to the kitchen there is a double bedroom with a balcony overlooking at the church profile and at the mural by Rosk and Loste, where you will find many original items deriving from fishing boats: for instance, the net and the steel ship’s wheel above the headboard, and the oars on the wall from the first half of the twentieth. Lastly, you will find a bathroom complete of shower.

Our house is the perfect choice to share places and customs of locals. Our apartment is located in the heart of the historical Kalsa neighborhood, just few stones away from the Foro Italico seafront meadows, the "Cala" marina with its cafes and ice-cream parlours, and close to many historical monuments and cultural sites as Palazzo Steri, the Abatellis Museum and many others. Just outside the front door of the building you can mingle in the heart of the oldest Palermo district: alleys and squares, noble monuments and churches, clashing in harmony and contradiction with local market stalls, with their colors, aromas and flavors, including some of the city's best street food, and finally the city cultural soul of museums and theaters. Finally, at walking distance from our apartment you can find several restaurants, and find yourself at ease both if you are looking for gourmet dining and for a typical local "trattoria".
The central station is about 10 minutes by walk, and from there there are several options available to get to the airport or to other Sicilian destinations.
