I've never seen a church quite like it. Very understated on the inside (compared to many of the Baroque churches in the city) but impressive all the same. The exterior is one of the best "non cathedral" churches I've seen.

We like piazzas but this is no piazza; it's just a large bleak open space surrounded by run-down buildings. We didn't go into the church but watched a wedding party coming out and being filmed by a camera attached to a drone.

Interesting norman romanesque building. Some call it a reduced version of the Duomo di Monreale but than without the mosaics. There are also some parts of the cloister that are still standing after the devastating bombings of the last war.

Spend some moments in Romanesque simplicity in this church in the centre of Palermo.
