You could spend a lot of time here exploring the stunning mosaics around the walls and interpreting those favourite stories from the old testament.. There is much of interest. The altarpiece and the mosaics surrounding it are absolutely breath-taking as are the carved ceilings. An...More

We wandered towards the bus stop on Independence Square for Monreale, found out that it was actually about 200m away from where it was marked and just before the bus arrived we remembered you needed to buy tickets from the tobacconist! Luckily there was one...More

There are not enough words to describe the beauty and craftsmanship! The history told through the mosaics was most informative.

Only 20 minutes ride by bus from the Center of Palermo, this is one of the finest Norman Churches anywhere. In the late 12th Century William the II, “the Good”, had a vision of the Virgin Mary asking him to build a cathedral in this...More

The Duomo was founded by William II in 1174 because he wanted a place to install his own choice as Archbishop because he was having trouble with the then Archbishop of Palermo. This was another outstanding example of Sicilian architecture which included the largest scheme...More

If you are traveling to Palermo, make sure to set some time aside to visit this incredible Norman Cathedral crafted in the Norman-Arab style with heavy Byzantine influence. Its stunning. We managed to get some seats during Mass on Sunday and, although we do not...More

We arrived in Monreale at lunch time, when the Cathedral was closed, but were able to visit the adjoining cloisters. These offer great insights into how Moorish and Norman designs are combined in Sicilian architecture. It was also a peaceful break. When the Cathedral opened...More

Less than an hour from downtown Palermo is the town of Monreale. While the town is quaint and full of tourist shops, The Duomo is the reason to visit. The construction and decoration of the building are amazing. The tiny mosaic tiles were all made...More
