Detail of the Monreale mosaics
When you follow the tour buses out of Palermo, up in the mountains, you stand a fair chance to end up in Monréale. Here, the big tourist trap (with justice), is the Cattedrale di Monreale. Once inside, you'll discover why this cathedral is an integral part of every Sicily package tour. Every inch of the interior is covered with the most beautiful gilded mosaics. Forget the crowds that surround you and just sit and watch this medieval masterpiece of art work!
Detail of the cloister columns
After visiting the cathedral, there is more to see... next door is a Benedictine abbey and its cloisters. It's a good place to get away from the tourist crowds and listen to the church bells... we liked particularly the ornaments in the columns of the cloisters.
