Absolutely stunning! The most beautiful mosaics imaginable. Spendtime with a guide OR a detailled guidebook, to really discover the stories told by the mosaics. As a main sight it is of course crowded... - Go early or late!

mosaics gleam at you in this wonderful place...designed so that worshippers could read the stories of the scriptures straight off the walls...what really draws you in is the half figure of Christ in the central apse....

Having fantastic holiday in Palmero - I will post review elsewhere. However, today I was pickpocketed in 389 bus from Palmero. On getting on to the bus, I seemed to be oddly blocked by an elderly person in front of me, surrounded by a crowd....More

Words can't express the beauty of this place so I won't try. Do make the effort to go there, you won't be disappointed.

Stunning cathedral in a beautiful little city up above Palermo. The mosaics are truly breathtaking. We paid the extra 2.50€ to climb up and the view out was even better! If you're in the area do not miss this!!!

We took the full experience and really enjoyed the church and its surroundings. Beautiful mosaics instead of paintings. Great colours and artwork all over. The building is impressive and very good invest of time. While the view from the roof is not overly spectacular and...More

The interior the epic cathedral is completely covered with gold mosaics, which represents scenes of the Bible. Never saw anything like this in all our travels. It was a "marvel" to behold.
