“Due to the various conquering nations and empires that have had a presence in Palermo, this cathedral has a myriad of different styles and is a truly fascinating building. Originally constructed in 1185 on the instruction of Pope Gregory I, the church has seen many uses including a mosque and a crypt. The Moorish influence is present on the exterior and it features a fine central basilica and a tall renaissance clock tower. Furthermore the portico side entrance features several ornate columns and a triangular pediment with a detailed fresco. Inside, a prominent feature is the treasure chamber that holds various artefacts from different time periods of the church, and also the tomb of Emperor Frederick II. The roof here is the real cherry on top. You might need to shell out a couple of euros to get there, but it’s worth the look. You get a privileged view over palermo’s Old Town and can see how remarkable the city actually is.”

“Palermo is packed full of ancient and beautiful religious buildings and the Martorana (Cathedral of St. Mary of the Admiral) is a truly delightful example. As with Palermo Cathedral, La Martorana also features an amalgamation of various architectural styles due to years of conquest. Located in the Piazza Bellini, the church is next to the famous Pretoria Fountain and Quattro Canti square. Inside this fabulous building, the design and artwork is again sublime – The main dome features a golden mosaic of Christ and the ceilings and arches are full of frescos and colourful depictions. It truly is a fantastic building to behold and the ornate workings will leave you in disbelief.”

“The order of Capuchin Friars dates back to the 1500’s and this abbey was dedicated to their usage. Whilst the abbey itself is not a fantastic building, the catacombs are the true marvel and are not like any other attraction in Europe. Here you will travel underground into the vast catacombs and see a macabre variety of burials and well preserved bodies from various periods in time. The Capuchin Monks would preserve the bodies and keep them in their original garments and also use embalming techniques. Tours are now possible of the catacombs and you can see this bizarre burial ground containing over 8000 bodies.”
