Palazzo dello Spagnolo

Palace Naples, Italy

The Neapolitan Baroque And Its Hidden Gem Palazzo dello Spagnolo

Palazzo dello Spagnolo, in Naples’s Rione Sanità, is attributed to one of the masters of Neapolitan baroque architecture, Gaetano Sanfelice (1675-1748), famous for the daring design of his staircases.

The so-called “eagle wings” stairs in Palazzo dello Spagnolo certainly are the most spectacular and famous in Naples, and a symbol of Neapolitan baroque architecture. There are other examples in Palazzo Trabucco and Palazzo Venezia, as well as in other buildings designed by Sanfelice, like Palazzo Sanfelice (which he built for his family between 1724 and 1728) and Palazzo Di Majo (renovated in 1728).
