Do you have to replace the Fish Market?

Hello! I hope these photos of the castle can be more useful. Unfortunately I did not have many shots during the day and then I added some of the opening night, I hope you still. Photo of Fish Market I have not, but if you need I can always do;)

Well, I don't know that site very well, 'cause I'm not from Palermo but I live in another large similar city in Sicily.
Maybe a new fish market, well designed, could be a good solution. If you eliminate it, it must survive somewhere in the same area.
I think the idea of a cool restaurant/boat club is interesting, or maybe a sea-museum or something like it. I don't think a fashion centre would be well located there; it'd be better a conference centre linked to the castle!

Hi lordofmax , I have never been to Palermo so I cannot help you .
How is it possible that with the great means at disposal of american universities you can ' t find more pictures and infos there , maybe surfing on the web , maybe with googlestreets ?
Anyway if I find something interesting for you I will let you know .
