Palermo has a great many churches that seem quite modest and restrained from the outside yet absolutely burst with decoration internally. This is so true of Chiesa del Gessu. The marble work inside is jaw-dropping. The work that went into the decoration is astounding. It is well maintained and unlike a few of the churches it does offer a concise pamphlet with useful information. It is all too possible to get lost in the detail and I must admit I got a crick in my neck from the time spent tracing the finery with my eyes! Entry here was €2 at the time of our visit.
