is an ancient fortress that guarded the entrance to the port. Extensive remains are visible and open to the public, including an Arab-Norman keep and a sophisticated Renaissance star-shaped defence
Except for the Steri, Castello al Mare ("Castle-by-the-Sea") is the only true castle in Palermo proper, and not much of it remains.
Baluardo difensivo di epoca arabo-normanna, trasformatosi nel XVI secolo in residenza dei vicerè.
