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.

  • The Church of the Gesu, apparently out goes a bit unnoticed, there are many churches in Palermo, but inside the ornaments, the basilica and the frescoes of the dome are of impressive beauty.

  • I think it most fascinating wing Church of Palermo, as you enter you are struck and almost breathless for the richness of reliefs and intari of all kinds and manufacture. Fors eun baroco eccssivo but still of great impact. Not to be missed by anyone visiting Palermo even faster.

  • 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.
