The story

Like a diamond in the rough whose luster increases over time, Palazzo Confalone rose at an uncertain date, probably between the late 13th and early 14th centuries, beginning a history of luster and wonder. It was the residence of a noble family originally from Scala. Aniello, known as Il Saggese, was the first member of the Confalone family to move to Ravello, probably in 1384. Thus began a history destined to enter the annals and enrich the lives and souls of many illustrious visitors, who left their mark there.

Of great artistic interest is its marble coat of arms with the rampant lion that, on the round arch of the front door, in all its splendor welcomes visitors to the Palace.

Of great architectural importance is its atrium, framed by majestic arcades and arches supported by marble columns, a sumptuous staircase leading to the main floor, a frescoed ceiling in an excellent state of preservation, and a garden with a belvedere over the Amalfi Coast bordered by octagonal columns. The aristocratic residence has become a hotel, a hotbed of art and thought, preserving the characteristics of a residence of the past.

Today Palazzo Confalone, the residence’s proper name, houses the 5-star Hotel Palazzo Confalone in the heart of Ravello.
