Chiesa del Gesù, Palermo

(4.7/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • A jewel set in the heart of old Palermo one of the most beautiful churches in my town, that I think might boast the highest ratio churches/Inhabitants of Europe. Definitely worth a visit ... you will not regret!!! Greetings from Palermo ... capital of culture 2018!!

  • This church is truly magnificent, marble inlay as the eye can see, entrance costs 5 euros, but you can also stop at the entrance to let you impress by that glitz ... near the ballarò market. a must surely

  • 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.
