Palazzo Carcassona

It was built in 1400 by the Carcassona family, a wealthy jew family.

The palace is located in via Sant’Erasmo and had its own cemetery and synagogue, that was in the now known as Piazza Santa Croce, called like that after the Aragonese threw the Jews out of the city.

After the Jews banishment, in 1492, the Carcassona goods and house were seized by the Aragonese. The building’s style is Gothic-Catalan although the decorated panels on the facade are late-Liberty.
