  • Small church stripped of the 12th with some traces of Arab structures to brighten Norman austerity. Pretty quiet and interesting

  • The Church of san cataldo is a very beautiful church medieval, located in the centre of Palermo, near piazza pretoria, one of the most beautiful places of the city. This church is simple, sleek shapes. It overlooks the square and is close to another Church that can also visit and whose name escapes me. A must visit in Palermo.
