  • A visit to the District of Abergheria is definitely a fascinating stage for a tourist who is located in Palermo. This multifaceted historic district is rich in history and monuments. Among its many alleys, also houses the ballaro market, which runs primarily on p.zza del Carmine, named after the Church here: that of Carmine maggiore. The Church possesses what can be described as "the most beautiful dome of Palermo". The quarter of the Albergheria, so called because once home of wanderers, is a place to peer with interest, because of its many surprises. In a moment you can discover the mullioned Windows, now bulwarks, palazzo Rosselli. Or a marble plaque that still indicates a place (piazza Grande, then food market) which is now called Via Cadorna. And yet the water towers and historical fountains in cast iron. And so ad infinitum ... Albergheria is for those who know how to look and don't linger at its contradictions. Albergheria is one treasure chest covered with Earth by scraping. Albergheria, as it deserves, you still have to be revalued.

  • The historic district that includes most of the city's treasures, has recently revitalized thanks to the development of tourism connected for example to Arab-Norman location. However there are still great room for improvement, a lot depends on the mentality and behaviour of palermitani.

  • 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.
