Palermo Centrale is the central railway station of Palermo, the capital of Sicily. It is one of Italy's most essential "FS" stations and its region, along with Catania, Messina, and Syracuse Central Stations.

Palermo Centrale Railway Station is owned by the national rail company of Italy, Ferrovie Dello Stato.

Di Giovanni, an Italian Architect, designed the railway station. The station was then opened on June 7, 1886. The railway structure was characterized by a large roof with iron and glass, substituted in the early 1950s with a reinforced concrete structure.

Palermo Centrale is situated in the middle of the city, at Julius Caesar square, now Piazza Giulio Cesare. The establishment has a multi-level facility—a terminal station with ten platforms for passenger service purposes.

As a transport, the Centrale is an essential hub for the entire Sicily regional services. It also serves as the citizen's subway, which links it to the Airport of Punta Raisi. For long-distance transport, it is the terminus of InterCity trains to Naples, Rome, Milan, and still 1970s Paris.
