Things to know about Monreale
Among the most characteristic cities in Sicily, Monreale is certainly worth noting, especially for its architectural heritage. It stands on the slopes of Mount Caputo and dominates the wonderful citrus groves of the Conca d'Oro and the city of Palermo, a few kilometers away.
Monreale boasts amazing mosaics, which can be admired in the interior of the Cathedral, the most important example of Norman architecture in Sicily, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 2015.
If you visit Monreale in May, make sure not to miss the Feast of the Holy Cross, a symbolic event in the city: a unique opportunity to breathe the authentic atmosphere of the town.
