Tucked away in a side street in old Palermo and in close proximity to Chiesa di Santa Caterina d'Alessandria and Santa Maria dell’Ammiraglio (La Martorana) so very easy to visit all three.
A few minutes walk from Quattro Canti, the historical center of Palermo, yet we missed it on our first visit, since it is a few blocks from the main Street.

We had a guided tour through the Palace in English, the tour guide provided many informative details about the history of the place and its role during Spanish inquisition.
And well worth the macabre visit is the Inquisition Museum, consisting of a series of cells that are accessible only with a guided visit.

The church opened at 15:30 and after entering I was greeted by the most beautiful sights of a church that spires its ways to the heavens.
Tucked away behind one of the corners of the Quattro Canti, we were lucky as it was open in preparation for a wedding later in the day.

In a small piazza with the City Hall behind the visitor finds a marble oasis and a picturesque scenery to immortalise happy moments in Palermo.
In particular, check out the animal heads on the lower level - they're so much better than most examples of animal sculpture you come across, life-like and evocative.

#23 of 357 Sights & Landmarks in Palermo
We almost passed by it... because this church, of Santissimo Salvatore, a baroque jewel, is there, right on Corso Vittorio-Emanuele, where what you expect is just expensive sweets and chic shops.
This church is beautiful inside but the real beauty and surprise lies if you walk down the side of the church and pay the 2.50 euros to take a walk to the summit of the dome.
