  • After visiting all the Arabo-Norman sites around Palermo, I can state that Benedictine Cloister in Monreale is the best preserved, the largest and the most impressive, by far. There are 228 columns...  more »
  • We have seen many cloisters throughout Europe but I believe these may be the prettiest we have seen. It was so interesting to see how each pair of posts is different than the ones surrounding it...  more »
  • I don't understand, how can they take 6€ from each visitor and don't cut the grass in the park. I would not put electric wires that way not even in a cow stable... Come on! world's heritage in bad hands. Like half of Italy.
  • As if the Duomo nearby is not enough, the cloister is extraordinarily elegant and beautiful, a masterpiece of medieval art. Each column is decorated with anthropomorphic sculptures on capitals and Islamic motifs throughout their length. The beauty Norman kings left behind left us behind is source of eternal joy and inspiration (churches, cloisters, monuments)
