The mosaic-filled Monreale Cathedral (Duomo di Monreale) is both one of Italy’s most impressive masterpieces of medieval architecture and one of Sicily’s finest examples of Norman design. The triumph of Norman, Arab, Byzantine and classical elements was built by William II in 1184, and continues to dazzle visitors almost 1,000 years later.

In 2015 UNESCO declared the itinerary "Palermo Arab Norman and the Cathedrals of Cefalù and Monreale" a World Heritage Site. The wealth of this island is also due to the peoples who invaded it and left their inheritances as well as, after the storms, corals and starfishes remain on the shore. With this tour, UNESCO celebrates in particular the legacy of two civilizations - that of the Arabs and that of the Normans, a people of warriors from Scandinavia with influences from Romanesque and Byzantine art - that have deposited in Sicily unparalleled architectural and artistic treasures. We will accompany you to the discovery of these and many other treasures which make our land unique and unmatched with the comfort and safety of our vehicles truly conducted by our reliable and professional drivers.

Monreale tour: stunning mosaics and beautiful blend of christian and islamic

Guided tour of Monreale, just 5 km from Palermo to 310 m above sea level on the hill of Mount Caputo. The visit will start from the cathedral, symbol of the town and declared in 2015 Unesco World Heritage monument. The Cathedral is undoubtedly an architectural masterpiece of the 12th century, in which different tastes are linked to the architecture of northern Europe, Romanesque art and Arabic art. Outside it is richly enriched by two bronze doors, the first of the Bonanno da Pisa and the second, not least, of the Barisano di Trani who also built that of Ravello and the cathedral of Trani. The interior is illuminated by magnificent gold mosaics that culminate in the Christ Pantocrator in the apsidal basin as the highest expression of figurative art. The tour continues with the visit of the monastery and the cloister flanked to the cathedral in the ancient Benedictine monastery and with the belvedere overlooking the valley and the golden basin of orange and citrus groves.
