  • Very central, Baroque, from the churches of La Martorana and San Cataldo. Abroad is not striking but the interior. Included in the sacred circuit, set of a dozen of the city's heritage sites which can be accessed at discount after buying the entrance in one of them.

  • I was impressed by the variety of subjects and colors of all the decorations of the Church. The right side altar a beautiful statue of St. Catherine, on the right side of the altar still perfectly visible and running a wooden door from which the nuns received communion.

  • Even if the outside is a little... mundane... inside hides a Merry of the Sicilian baroque, a very successful combination with Arab architecture. The walls are covered by sculptures inspired by the bible... On the ceiling we can admire beautiful paintings... It is a definite must. The price is €3 /pax.

  • Staff are rude, have to pay twice to actually see the entire church. The church itself is very nice
  • Extraordinarily beautiful interior.
  • Worth a two euro entry fee. Very well-kept and preserved in its breath taking style . It is adviced for people staying in Palermo for more than two days.
  • Worth of 2 EUR entry. Royal Palace should be the same price after excluding Palatina Chappel from regular entry ticket.
  • Beautiful place and monument in the centre of the city
