Casa Rocca Piccola is a 16th-century palace that is privately owned by the aristocratic de Piro family. It was originally built as the residence of the knight of the Order of Malta, Don Pietro La Rocca. The palace has over 50 rooms, most of which are available to visitors. A great attraction of the palace is the opportunity to visit its underground rock carved part.
A maze of underground corridors and tunnels cut into the limestone rock leads to two secret rooms. One of them is a large cave in which over 100 people protected themselves against Luftwaffe bomb attacks during World War II. The second room is a spacious room, used as a private shelter for the palace owners.
Wandering around Casa Rocca Piccola we can see the private chapel, bedroom, living rooms intended for winter use and rooms used only in summer. Visitors can also see the garden at the back of the building.
