The name of the castle was believed to derive from a legend, the result of a fictionalized story in the 1920s. It was fantasized that, about two centuries ago, a skilled Palermo doctor named Gaetano Palmieri healed the son of the prince of Palagonia, Gravina-Cruyllas, who, out of gratitude, gave him a plot of land located near the Fiumefreddo River. Palmieri built a fortified villa there and often lived there, as the place was greatly appreciated by his wife Rosalia. Nowadays the castle is privately owned by the Platania family, barons of Santa Lucia. © Castello degli Schiavi / unknown
