There are plenty of churches in Palermo and in the world. The syle of this church is very exagerate and 7 euro is a trap in my opinion.

You must see this church. The entire church is encased in carved marble. Animals, angels, saints, nature - all is masterfully carved from floor to ceiling. Unbelievable experience. Most beautiful church ever seen - and I have seen many!

This is a cathedral that must not be missed on a trip to Palermo. The interior is basically all marble and one of the most gorgeous cathedrals I have ever seen. The exterior of the church is not much to behold but when you enter,...More

Located on Piazza Casa Professa in central Palermo. A stunning Baroque gem which should not be missed. Costs 2 euro to visit the church & 5 euros for church, crypt & museum. You will not be disappointed.

This church is a must in visiting Palermo. Very interesting marble work and crypt is worth a visit. It is down a side street but easy to find

This church will take your breath away, with its entire internal building adorned with marble stucco, in between stained-glass windows and frescos/paintings. We were fortunate to be the only ones in the church for most of our visit. It was very special.

The church's exterior does not do justice to its interior. We walked in and wham, the interior takes your breath away. The white marble interior and the designs are over the top and would take hours or days to appreciate this church fully. Just sit...More
