There is no certain date for the construction of this palace, although some constructive characteristics and the history of this noble Ravello family indicate a period between the end of the thirteenth century and the beginning of the fourteenth.
The Confalone family, in fact, came from Scala and the first member to move to Ravello, transforming the surname from Compalone to Comphalonum, was Aniello, called the Sagese, in 1384.
It is the best preserved example of a noble palace in Ravello, where it is possible to identify the typical characters of residences halfway between noble buildings and places of commerce.
Round arches and precious columns of Greek and Roman civilization frame the rooms. On the arch of the entrance door of the structure, in all its glory, a rampant marble lion, coat of arms of the Confalone family, welcomes visitors, a symbol of a timeless past.
The rooms are located in both buildings, and feature modern design or period furnishings from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
Among the illustrious guests of the Palazzo, also Richard Wagner
who was struck by the beauty of the gardens of Villa Rufolo.
Palazzo Confalone is located near famous places of interest such as the beaches of Atrani and Maiori and Villa Rufolo
