The Baronial Palace of Roccabascerana, also known as the Prince's Palace, is a place of interest located in the historic centre of the Irpinian town.

The building was constructed in the 16th century at the foot of the cliff, using stone and other material taken from the fortress. It served as the residence of the D'Aquino and Della Leonessa families and reached the peak of its splendour in the 17th century, when it was used by the feudal lords not only for residential purposes, but also as a seat for issuing official documents.

Due to its abandonment by Baron Giuseppe Della Leonessa, the Baronial Palace went through a phase of decline, during which it lost its original appearance and functionality, as well as undergoing extensive restructuring work, dividing it into several residential units. Today, the Palace is visible only from the outside and has a rectangular layout across two levels, overlooking the ancient village.  
The entrance, covered by a barrel vault and preceded by an arched stone doorway, also granted access to the internal courtyard, formerly the garden of the noble residence.

Even today, the Baronial Palace still stands in all its majesty as a historical symbol of the Rocca community.
