Es war einfach umwerfend-diese Mosaike machen einem sprachlos. Unglaublich dass das alles von Menschenhand gemacht wurde! Unbedingt sehenswert! Auch die Ortschaft ist recht nett zum Durchbummeln!

I'm not really fond of churches and non religious, having seen thousands of European churches, but Monreale really surprised and impressed me. A world treasure and I'd recommend visiting to anybody.

We could only see the church, which was great. But missed the abbey as it was closed.

Monreale Cathedral Complex

The Monreale Cathedral Complex nestled in Monreale, Sicily, is a true testament to the fusion of Norman, Arab, and Byzantine cultures. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, built in the 12th century, stands as a symbol of medieval grandeur. The cathedral's awe-inspiring interior boasts 6,340 square meters of dazzling Byzantine mosaics, showcasing intricate biblical scenes and stunning gold leaf details.

Its stunning cloister is adorned with 228 twin columns, each uniquely designed, while the adjacent Benedictine monastery exudes tranquility in its lush gardens and elegant architecture. From its elevated position, the complex offers panoramic views of Palermo and the surrounding countryside, adding to its allure as a historical and artistic gem.
