Maecò Ortigia B&B is situated in via Landolina n.5, as part of the Palazzo Francica Nava which was originally built in the 14th century in the Catalan Gothic style. Following the devastating earthquake of 1693 the building was rebuilt with some Baroque additions and used by Jesuits until it was bought by the Francica Nava family, from which it still retains the name.

The renovation, completed at the beginning of 2016, followed the coherence of the original architecture with the intention being to keep alive the typical Sicilian atmosphere, and recreate a place to feel at home.
