Chiesa del Gesu, Palermo

4.7
Church · Tourist Spot
Gaze at the endless display of Baroque architecture and adornments inside Chiesa del Gesu. Hidden inside a misleadingly plain exterior, detailed carved marble inlays cover the walls like a mosaic among statues and columns. Descend into the comparatively plain crypt, and after passing through the porticoed courtyard, view a large collection of portraits in the attached museum housed in the Biblioteca Comunale. Put Chiesa del Gesu and other Palermo attractions into our Palermo trip itinerary website, and watch your holiday take shape.
