Stunning Norman Cathedral

This imposing and beautifully adorned duomo was built in 1174 in Monreale, just 10 km from Palermo’s city center. It is a prime example of Norman, Arabic and Byzantine architecture, and is said to be the last (and best) example of this type of structure. The mosaics that make up much of the interior are nothing short of breathtaking for those interested in Medieval art, and they've been very well preserved over the centuries. The square by the duomo is filled with cafés, restaurants, and shops, so you could easily make a day of this activity.
