Palazzo

image

Some Neapolitans enjoy their Sundays by spending time at the beach at Mergellina. This part of the beach is in front of Palazzo Donn’Anna, built on the site of a previous villa, La Sirena (the mermaid). Legend (or history, I’m not quite sure….!) has it that Queen Joan I of Naples used it frequently for luring her young lovers here before throwing them to their deaths in the sea.
