  • There are four main courses and is in the heart of the old town. In each corner a fountain at the base of the building to represent the 4 seasons.

  • Here, I think, come all who arrive in Palermo. These four corners-a very unusual place. Take a stroll.

  • Quattro Canti, also known as Teatro del Sole because every corner is, the passing of the hours, plunged into the Sun. Inspired by the Quattro Fontane in Rome. Are the facades of four Baroque buildings with different decorations mostly allegorical statues of emperors, Saints and fountains at the base.

  • A must see! Do not hesitate to enter inside the church. Have a look to the impressive ceilings!
  • Nice square (crossroad), perfect to start your exploration of Palermo. Much more is coming.
  • Amazing crossroad with fountains representing the four seasons, the kings and vice kings of Spain and the saints of Palermo. The worst: Signs are only in Latin. A challenge: to find the fifth corner! Finding it makes you think that nothing was impossible or too much for the baroque style.
  • Beautiful crossroad, it doesn't take you a lot of time to see it, it is actually very fast to go through it but it is beautiful. Each corner is a season. Once you are inside it, it seems like you are inside a room with 4 doors. It seems like they are embracing you, not like just a crossroad where there are straight buildings.
  • My favorite spot in Palermo. Really​ unique construction.
