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!

It was nice to wander through the cathedral although some renovation works are underway. We enjoyed climbing up the steps to the roof areas- lovely views of the cloister area and the village and across the valley to Palermo.
