The Cuba Palace was built around 1180, during the reign of William II. Like the Zisa, it was one of the royal solaces in the Genoard park. The pavilion, built near a water basin, has a compact shape, lightened by blind Fatimite arches, decorated in relief on the tufa wall face. The interior and the layout of the space also echo the articulation of the Zisa. Surrounding the Cuba is a beautiful garden with fruit trees and fountains.
