  • If having visited the Cathedral of Monreale, believed he had seen the acme of Norman art, was wrong, since exceeds it the Palatine Chapel,. The Palatine Chapel, is in the city of Palermo, on the ground floor of the Royal Palace of the Norman kings. All hood, medium-sized, is a wonder and a masterpiece of Byzantine art, with decorated wooden ceilings and beautiful blue and gold mosaics. Together with the Cathedral of Monreale, heritage of humanity by Unesco, and the truth is that everything you say about it, will stay short to catch the reality. Nooo, this must-see! a trick, visit her in December, no hassles...
