Palazzo De Lieto - the Maratea Museum

Palazzo De Lieto, now home to museum exhibitions, is a building built by the De Lieto family in 1700 to host the first hospital in Maratea.
In 1800 the Maratea Hospital became a district and in the following century it was moved to the former convent of the Paolotti (see St. Francis Church). The palace was then home to elementary schools until the mid 1960s, so it was unused until its restoration in the 1990s, becoming the property of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and used them precisely for cultural activities and museum exhibitions.
The building retains the impressive stone portal with a large wooden door overhanged by stone and tuff architraves and is located on a large rock spur in the historic center of Maratea, near the Mother Church. Palazzo De Lieto is spread over two floors, characterized by the presence of large halls and on the upper floor also with long loggias, divided by arches with piedritti worked.
