High on UNESCO's World Heritage List, this pretty cathedral in Palermo is the most beautiful Norman church in Sicily. Explore it with an optional audio guide, see mosaics and motifs from the 10th century, and even head into the cloisters!

The optional audio guide for this tour of the Cloister of Monreale is packed with historical facts and info. Tune in, step inside and marvel at the unique interior of a building founded in 1174 by the Norman King William II.

You can almost feel the history in the walls!

Then head into the cloister, which belongs to the Benedictine Abbey of S. Maria Nuova, and explore religious iconography, medieval animals, and scenes from the Old and New Testament.

Note the asymmetrical columns, each topped with a floral capital. Those Normans knew how to add a flourish!

A must see. Take a local bus, it only took 15 minutes and was approximately 3 euto return compared to a taxi for 25 euro one way! We went early on a Saturday morning and avoided the crowds. A lovely way to spend a morning. The cloisters are a must being peaceful and shaded. Bought some authentic, locally made souvenirs.
