Of sixteenth-century origin, Palazzo D’Elia looks out with its façade over the piazza by the same name. The façade is divided into two orders by a long balustrade in Lecce stone, whose linearity is interrupted by a balcony supported by seven brackets decorated with putti holding bunches of grapes and garlands of flowers, and by statuettes symbolizing prosperity and abundance.
The portal, which opens beneath the balcony, is topped by the family crest, depicting the prophet Elijah on a chariot traversing the flames.
The interior, rich with large, elegantly decorated rooms, houses a small family chapel and an underground olive press.
Owned by the municipality, the building was home to the magistrates’ court during the Kingdom of Italy; the front is delimited on the right by a column placed against the corner of Via Pendino.
