  • While the exterior is unremarkable, inside there are many gems to see. We loved them mosaic tiles, the beautiful ceilings, the chandeliers and the many sculptures.  more »
  • Date to the early 1300's. One of the few churches that requires a payment to enter. Plain exterior. Very busy interior. If you like baroque then this church may really appeal to you. The art and sculp...  more »

  • 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
  • Amazing place! Full of light and positive energy
  • For the people of Palermo the Church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria is linked to the memory of delicious pastries among these cannoli and sheep of martorana, the magnificent tombs of Holy Thursday and therefore the wheel that the Dominican nuns of Papal enclosure were selling their desserts. The delicate marble inlays that decorate the walls, the rich silver altar with its huge cherubini, statues of ecstatic contemplation of the divine, elegant Dominican Saints in the cloister, refectory, kitchens and parlour are all to admire and take visitors within environments that until three years ago it was impossible to "desecrate".
