The 4 streets that intersect here in the historic center are close to many shops, restaurants, and historic buildings. Study the niches and the architecture: interesting stories.

If you visit Palermo, you must go to the Quattro Canti piazza to see the four season statues. They represent the four Spanish kings of Sicily. Enjoy the view of beautiful facades and take lots of pictures...

Beautiful side of Palermo, right in the centre of the city. If you visit you will walk by this place many times.

Not that much to say other than this feels like the true centre of Palermo. The real bustle is in Via Maqueda (not sure about the spelling) plenty of bars and restaurants all around. Nice carvings not sure if teh sun shines all day.

Tall, impressive, beautiful buildings on each corner of a busy crossroad in central Palermo. The intersection is smaller than you imagine but still makes an impact. Worth stopping for a few photos and to admire the facades.

At the junction of the main road, usually very busy area. Fantastic sculptures, apparently one is always in the sunshine! Sometimes a local group will be performing on one of the corners. On a visit to Palermo you can’t miss it.

This four corner intersection is the epicenter of historic Palermo. A walk to each of the four corners and a glance at your guidebook will cover it nicely. It’s a great point of reference for a walking tour and a superior rendezvous spot. As a...More
