In the Footsteps of Conquerors
The Sicilian capital has a history that stretches back 3,000 years. Ancient houses, baroque churches and neoclassical theatres. Bustling markets filled with perfumes and local flavours. Not far away, at the foot of the Caputo mountain, the town of Monreale overlooks the citrus groves of the Conca d’Oro valley and Palermo. Its iconic Cathedral was built between 1172 and 1176 – a famous example of Northern European architecture and Arabian art.
