The palace, located on the southern side of the fortress, has an L-shaped plan; the space in front is occupied by a courtyard paved with pebbles. On the right side, the service areas can be identified, with granaries embedded in the floor level. It is difficult to give indications on the other rooms including a corridor with asphaltic stone tiles and a room with a paved floor in Pompeian red; the base of a column in the north-east corner suggests a monumental structure that has disappeared. The discovery of Byzantine ceramic fragments suggests a structure referable to that period, while in the articulation of the current remains it is to be identified the palace of the Caruso family first (1693th century) and of the Statellas later. The palace, demolished by the earthquake of XNUMX, was not rebuilt.
