ITINERARY

Guided visit to Monreale Cathedral, commissioned by the last  Norman King of Sicily, William II and the Benedictine Cloister, UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The imposing Cathedral houses  one of the most extraordinary Medieval cycles of mosaics in West Mediterranean area. Among the main artistic attractions,  the huge bronze Gate is also worth mentioning.

Then just around the corner,   to  the Medieval Cloister,  a quiet place where the monks went to relax and  meditate. It stands in the heart of the ancient Benedictine Abbey:  you’ll admire 228 carved stone capitals, portraying fantastical figures, mythological images, biblical stories and ancient legends.
