The Techno-Wizard's Palace




Enlil the techno-wizard stayed here when he was not at his cottage or traveling. This mansion complex was called "Theophore House" and was built mostly from his design. He didn't own it; it was owned by a coalition of people including his family as well as the Theophoric Institute of Surakosai, of which he was director. Many guests and students stayed here as well. The complex included laboratories, a private apartment for Enlil, guest rooms, a common-room with a big fireplace, gardens, and an enclosed greenhouse garden which you can see at center with all the glass. Theophore House was situated on the top of cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea on the south coast of Sicily.
