The Mezzatorre Hotel & Thermal Spa is housed in a structure with a captivating past. Originally built as a watchtower by the Aragonese family in the 16th to 17th century, it was never completed, hence its name "Mezzatorre," which means "Half-Tower."
The tower was later expanded in the 18th century by the dukes of Rancidello. In the 1930s, it served as a boarding house until Luigi Patalano, a renowned scholar, politician, and poet, acquired it and transformed it into a lively cultural centre. Patalano also constructed "La Colombaia," a stunning villa in the same park as Mezzatorre that was formerly owned by Baron Fassini and, later, by film director Luchino Visconti in the 1950s.
In 2018, the Sciò family stumbled upon Mezzatorre and became enamoured with it. The Pellicano Hotels Group took over management of the hotel in 2019. CEO & Creative Director of the Group, Marie-Louise Sciò, put her personal touch on every aspect of the property and turned it into an exceptional Italian residence that perfectly complements the Pellicano brand.
