Monreale Things to Do: 67 reviews and 192 photos
Unlike most nave-transept churches this crossing does not have a dome. The central transept area is large and its walls are devoted to mosaics of the Life of Christ (see Tip). It is covered over by a wood ceilng restored in the 19C. It differs from the rest of the roof in that this is of stylized stalactites in the Moorish manner.
