  • One of the four historical quarters of Palermo, on its territory, the Royal Palace with the Palatine Chapel, the fairest Chiesa del Gesu and lots of shedevralnyh churches, palazzos, museums ... In this case, there are really running the streets and crumbling houses with some incredible graffiti. And yet the area is famous for its market of Ballaro, where also well worth a peek, and if you don't buy, then enjoy the flavor.

  • Albergheria or Royal Palace is one of four historic districts (mandates) of Palermo and also further South. Inside there are both popular market of Ballarò that many of the city's most important monuments and buildings: the Norman Palace, the Church of San Giovanni degli eremiti, red domes of the Church of the Gesù characteristics or professed house, until you reach the Church of San Giuseppe dei Teatini, near the quattro canti crossroads where all four mandates. The main road is the via Vittorio Emanuele (course or Caron, for the of Palermo ones) and from here you can reach all the main places of interest. In the allegorical depiction of Qattro songs, in this neighborhood are linked representations of Santa Cristina, Charles V and of spring.

  • The mandamento Albergheria, at least in part, is critical for a visit to Palermo. It contains some of the most important monuments: Palazzo dei Normanni with Cappella Palatina, San Giovanni degli Eremiti, Casa Professa. Exploring around the district, you will find many other beautiful monuments and fascinating corners mixed unfortunately still very degraded buildings (which fortunately, restoration after restoration, diminishing). And then, the Albergheria, the finest historic Palermo host Ballarò market, a must see. Some places I recommend:-they're obviously seen Norman Palace, San Giovanni degli Eremiti and Casa Professa-Piazza della Vittoria, on which see the Oratory of St Helena and Constantine, with the courtroom completely frescoed-Piazza San Giovanni decollato-Via dei Biscottari, with a visit to the wonderful Palazzo Conte Federico-Piazza Santa Chiara and Vicolo Santa Chiara-the medieval Alley St. Joseph of Arimathea, with great charm-Rua cheeses/University Street with beautiful buildings restored-Via Apulia, with the prospect of Building Special Raffadali-Raffadali and Climb up to Casa Professa square Bologni-piazzetta Brunaccini, with the entrance of the public library and Carlton-Piazza Carmine, from where you can admire the most beautiful dome of Palermo (that of Carmine Maggiore)-Arch of Cutò (incorporated in Palazzo Cutò, Via Maqueda 26) to directly access the ballaro market-the Baroque Saint Francis Xavier
