House with terrace in former Bishop Palace


Oikos Real Estate proposes a house with terrace inside a former bishop palace dating back to 1750.


The house is located in Via Vicerè Speciale near the church dedicated to the “Madonna dell’Arco”. It sits in a reserved and quiet environment. It has an independent entrance and it can be accessed from a large courtyard with attached parking space. A pitchstone stair leads to the house’s internal spaces. The house, big about 170 sq.m., is composed of: a living area, with the possibility to build a loft on it or a terrace above, a large and bright living room, three bedrooms, a storeroom and a bathroom. General conditions of the property require some renovation work. The property encloses big potentials because internal spaces can be modulated according to your needs.

Chiesa dell’Arco is one of the main baroque churches, since it formerly had the role of Mother Church, before the construction of San Nicolò Cathedral. Behind it, was the convent of the Cistercian Fathers, which was the first location of Noto’s diocese until when the Bishop Palace wasn’t completed. The only remnant left of this convent is the entrance arcade that leads to the former Cloister of the ancient Cistercian Monastery, of which just a small wing of the house is used as a private residence.


This property is unique since its strategical position is a great solution for personal residential use or for making a tourist-accommodation facility out of it.


Located a few steps away from the city historic center, it lets you move freely on foot to enjoy the Baroque beauties and tasting the culinary specialties of Sicilian cuisine. It is 87 km away from Catania’s Fontanarossa Airport, 7 km from Lido di Noto beaches and about 10 km from Vendicari and Calamosche beaches.
