A real landmark and an architectural gem symbolising the four parts of the city and the four rivers. How many times did we walk past? Admired it each time.

Statues, fountains, carvings at the intersection of 4 streets in historic Palermo. Very impressive street art, worth a look.

A must see when in Palermo. The 4 corners represent a unique insight into the history of Palermo. Located a short walk down the main Street enabled us to enjoy both shopping and sight seeing.

Central to Palermo, the Quattro Canti is lovely to see and an ideal place to meet....everybody can point you in the right direction. Architecturally stunning, well worth a picture or two!

One of the many attractions the ancient city of Palermo has to offer. Placed on a most popular street in town, Quattro Quanti is the most spectacular crossroad I have ever witnessed. Not to be missed!
