About this tour

Monreale is a lively town nestled on the slopes of the mountain, on a spur overlooking the Oreto valley and the Conca d’Oro. It is the main tourist center in the Palermo area, known for the beauty of its views and, above all, for the superb Duomo, adorned with gold mosaics for a surface area of ​​approximately 6500m².

It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site

The masterpiece of Norman architecture remains the Cathedral of Monreale , a Latin cross basilica founded by William II in 1174. Inside the walls are entirely decorated with mosaics. The stories of the Old and New Testament – ​​from creation to the Acts of the Apostles – are dominated by the imposing figure of Christ Pantocrator.

Among the secularized assets of the Church is the annexed cloister of the Benedictine Convent, built in 1175, where the spirit of collaboration between Christian and Muslim workers, already very profitable in the laying of the mosaics inside the cathedral, reached an astonishing formal perfection .
