Villa Cattolica



Villa Cattolica was built in 1736 by the Prince of Cattolica Eraclea, Francesco Bonanno, as a summer residence. The baroque style of the villa is reminiscent of a quadrangular castle with two parallel exedra, from one of which departs the baroque staircase with double ramp that leads to the upper floor; from the other, a recently restored panoramic terrace with underlying loggia can be seen. Since 1973, the noble floor of Villa Cattolica has been home to the Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery following a generous donation by master painter, Renato Guttuso to the municipality of Bagheria. The Gallery boasts a large collection of paintings by Guttuso dating from 1929 to 1986.
