Chiesa del Gesù, Palermo
(4.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Gaze at the endless display of Baroque architecture and adornments inside Chiesa del Gesù. Hidden inside a misleadingly plain exterior, detailed carved marble inlays cover the walls like a mosaic among statues and columns. Descend into the comparatively plain crypt, and after passing through the porticoed courtyard, view a large collection of portraits in the attached museum housed in the Biblioteca Comunale. Put Chiesa del Gesù and other Palermo attractions into our Palermo vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Having free time downtown, we decided to visit this church reported by guides. Well, I think we've got one of the most dizzying emotions of recent times: a hyperbolic, excessive decorative and overwhelming triumph. A marvel, in the truest sense of the word. Not to be missed.

  • Not much to add, you just have to see it x understand the richness of this Baroque church. There is much to see especially if supplemented with the top view from the terraces of the Church. inquire first.
