Not too much to shout about from the outside, but wow, once you get inside. Much of the interior is covered in fabulous mosaics which are well worth seeing - even if you are not religious. Free to enter but worth paying the small amount...More

This was an incredibly beautiful church. We had a guide with us so it brought a lot of meaning to what we were viewing.

Unbelievable to visit this beautiful church, nearly 1,000 years old in the hills above Palermo. Built by the Normans with Byzantine, Arab and Norman influences the workmanship is astounding. Sleepy little hill town to walk through. Well worth the ride. Two similar churches, one in...More

No tour of Sicily would be complete without visiting the beautiful cathedral at Monreale. In fact, I would say it's worth flying to Sicily just to see that place, although there are other things on the island that any visitor should see too such as...More

Definitely one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen (I've travelled all over Europe) and probably my best memory of Sicily. The walls are entirely covered in beautiful, shiny mosaics. The architecture is original (a great mix of norman and arab architecture).

Monreale was a suggested attraction several times over by various sources so we went with gusto. The issue is it's not that easy to get to. We went via one of the hop on/off bus companies which only go later in the day so got...More

Monreale is a hillside town, so be prepared for narrow steep road on the approach - and very limited car parking. However the location is stunning, with the Duomo being equally stunning. Entry is from the cloisters at the side of the building and once...More

At the foot of Monte Caputo is the impressive structure of this cathedral which is lavishly decorated with beautiful mosaics. Some tell the tales of the Old Testament, others the miracles of Christ. They meet at the apse where a 7m high mosaic of Christ...More
