  • Essential, old, rich in history and charm, austere in its simplicity, but feature, not to be missed.

  • Simple and sober, has spanned the centuries by carrying out various tasks including post office, and eventually became one of the symbols of the city of Palermo with its three red cupolas!!!

  • Church has ancient origins, in Arab-Norman style, is a symbol of the city. The outside consists of a simple body on top of which the three famous red domes (originally white). The Interior and simple, bare, unadorned emits light on the fantastic original structure that creates a suggestive atmosphere. So close physically to the Mrtorana as diverse as tree .... That great city!
