Monreale, the Cathedral
UNESCO Heritage of the world, the Benedictine complex of Monreale consists of a cathedral and its cloisters.
After thirty years I've been in touch with this amazing temple, the lecture in the cathedral follows an historical logic introducing the personality of king William II Hauteville, its inventor, using the icons on both two registries: devotion to Mary as the Mother and the Queen, and an animated dispute with the Pope.
Please note: entrance fee is included
Up to you after the lecture, free visit of the cloysters (6€ entrance fee)
