"The jewel near Palermo" Monreale by extrajoce

Monreale Travel Guide: 52 reviews and 117 photos

A breath-taking cathedral

Since I was visiting Palermo, I could not overlook this magnificent cathedral, which many compare to St Marc's in Venice for the quality of its mosaic. It is a beautiful construction, and makes for a good half day visit away from the regional capital.
