Palermo and Monreale

Palermo, city of peace, the cradle of union of the peoples of the Mediterranean extends along the gulf of the same name, and lies on the Conca d’Oro, so called because of the golden color of the citrus groves in the sun, surrounded by a wall natural: the Mountains Palermo. The whole history has given it a remarkable artistic and architectural heritage, from the remains of the Punic walls with art nouveau villas, passing through the Greek temples, theaters neoclassical, baroque churches and residences in Arab-Norman style (an original mix of decorations Arab-Byzantine-Romanesque that has no equal in Italy). The splendor of Palermo begins with the Arab domination (from the ninth to the eleventh century), which transforms the city into one of the richest in Europe. Known as the city of delights for its maze of gardens, streets and elegant buildings, Palermo still retains its cosmopolitan and multicultural character, thanks to the ancient harbor towards the East. The lively atmosphere of this Mediterranean city is reflected in the social life, punctuated by rituals that burst from the remote past to innovate and adapt to the present. Palermo is also home to the Puppet Museum, widely regarded as the world’s largest of its kind. And closer to the world of the Sicilian puppets (oral heritage of humanity) is a great way to understand the true nature of Palermo and ideals that inspire them: chivalry, honor, justice, faith, love and a strong devotion to the patron saint of Santa Rosalia city which as a greeting among the Viva Palermo Palermo and Santa Rosalia.

Monreale, a town built, starting from the architectural complex of the Benedictine monastery which is part of the magnificent cathedral dedicated to Santa Maria Nuova, the most important example of Norman architecture in Sicily, legend has it that the church was built by King William to fulfill the vow to the Madonna. Inside the Byzantine mosaics fail to arouse the wonder of visitors to the tune of the deep poetic unity that respects its precise logic stages in both figurative and from the point of view of theological-dogmatic, with many moments of the Old and New Testament that culminate in the central apse with the evocative vision of Christ Pantocrator
