The Cathedral of Palermo
Built around 1200, it is the splendid religious symbol of Palermo, where you can admire the strong Arab influence.
Capo’s Street Market
It is the beating heart of the city, characterized by strong colors and sublime flavors. The start of the market is indicated by the majestic Porta Carini and is considered the place to find the best fish in the city, the perfect background for its excellent street food.
There are also two other markets in the city, Vucciria and Ballarò.
The Norman Palace
Located in Piazza Indipendenza, it was the home of the kings of the Kingdom of Sicily, and it is still the oldest royal residence in Europe today.
Inside is the Palatine Chapel, in which the golden finish typical of the Norman-Byzantine style stands out.
The Pretoria Fountain
This masterpiece by the sculptor Camilliani has a very interesting story because it was transferred from Florence to Piazza Pretoria.
These attractions are just a small taste of what the city has to offer.
