Nice place to visit....recommended. There are only a few places to visit in Monreale and this is one of them. Apparently on Sundays you can park on the blue lines without paying.

This is the square in front of the main entrance to the Duomo, and because of that it's very picturesque and pretty. Nice fountain adding to the beauty.

Attractive main square, perfect to look at the Normad style facade of the main cathedral. An attractive fountain stands in the middle of the square. Great pizza place on the far side of the square.

A little too scruffy - when you consider it is home to the probably the finest Cathedral with most exquisite Byzantine mosaics in the world. We could not see signs for the entrance to the Cathedral and were wrongly directed. The Cathedral was covered in...More
