Know More about this tour

Part punic, part phoenician, part Roman, part Arab: there is no doubt the city of Palermo has an exciting background.
Kalsa, from the Arabic al- Halisah that means 'Elected', was the fortified citadel during the Islamic domination of Palermo, seat of the emir and his ministers.
There were Mediterranean gardens, fragrant flowers and fountains of fresh water. In the centuries following the Arabian domination, the district has witnessed a lot of transformations: the fortification walls and the gardens have been eliminated, new roads have been opened and new palaces and beautiful baroque churches have been built.
Despite its renewed look, the Kalsa has maintained the charm and an atmosphere charged with mystery. Your expert local guide will tell you about the many curiosities and legends which surround it.
