  • First the beautiful square in the center of which is the column to the Immaculate that rests on a pedestal surrounded by marble statues of the four archangels on pedestals and the bronze statues of Popes with the top of the bronze statue of our Lady pointing towards the front of the Church. The seventeenth century Church of San Domenico is the largest church building of Sicily, in the Baroque style. On side two bell towers and various stucco statues of the Serpotta. The baroque interior is rich in works of art. The Church has also a Pantheon of illustrious personalities of Sicily, in fact the Church contains tombstones, graves and Memorial plaques. One above all for value and courage is the Magistrate Giovanni Falcone, who was killed by the mafia. Nice also the cloister of the 13th century. Perfect acoustics, I witnessed the interpretation of Gregorian chant, panis angelicum, on the occasion of a marriage, by shivering. The Church of San Domenico is located in Piazza San Domenico

  • Put the eyes especially the cloister of San Domenico is the best preserved and enjoy one of the power most beautiful cloisters of Palermo ... Deserves more "Glory" with near Oratorio del Rosario: super!

  • Do not write to make a review to a place, but give a technical information on the Church of San Domenico in Palermo. I went to this church to visit the grave of Judge Giovanni Falcone, but to my surprise and much regret I heard that the Church is always closed except on Sundays, when the Holy Mass is celebrated. So if you want to visit this place, inform yourself well if at other times of the year is open or if this unusual opening is perennial.

  • There at no sexy. Boy
  • three stars just because it's not in the top ten churches of Palermo
  • Beautiful monument
  • Amazing
  • The most important Dominican Church and second church for importance of Palermo. A stern, but not in its Baroque splendour, both outside and inside. Immense church with three naves divided by sixteen monolithic columns of marble Billiemi. Rich in works of art the chapels within the aisles. The magnificent wooden choir. Don't miss the Pantheon where among other things he was buried Giovanni Falcone. Don't forget the big rectangular cloister.
