It's disorienting to enter a Sicilian church and not quite know where you are. The Duomo at Monreale, high above the plain (Conca d'Oro) where Palermo seethes and spreads, is ostensibly a Norman cathedral; but inside, the aesthetics of ancient Damascus and Byzantium - graceful,...More

This is spectacular Duomo. Pay attention to beautiful bronze doors at the main entrance. Amazing mosaics. Don't miss cloisters.

It takes some time to get here, but ti's worth it. Be aware of the opening times, during lunch it's closed. We took the hop on hop off bus to get here and you get plenty of time to visit the catherdral.

My wife and I visited the Cathedral of Monreale near Palermo during a two-week vacation in Sicily. We parked on the side of a street near the Cathedral, not realising that there is a special car park (with a charge of Euro 1 per hour)....More

Absolutely stunning in our view, after looking at all the mosaics, we spent 45 mins just sitting down and soaking up the atmosphere. A real highlight for us!

TisPete, do you know if the cloitre is opened at the same time as the Duomo? Also is it possible to see the cloitre while the mass is going? (I am going to be in Monreale on Sunday in early October). Thanks.
