Palermo - A brief overview
Palermo, the capital of Italy's Sicily Island, is a beautiful city. It is a great place if you want to experience different cultures in one unique setting. Settled at the foot of Monte Pellegrino, it is home to numerous cultures – Arabian, Christian, Byzantine, and Jewish – whose impressions can be seen all over the city in the form of art and historic structures. Outdoor markets to street bazaars, exceptional public squares to parks, and from small churches to grand Cathedrals, Palermo is certainly a sight to behold.
Tourist attractions in Palermo
Also known as the Square of Shame, Piazza Pretoria is a square centerpiece located on the verges of the district of Kalsa. Interestingly it got its name ‘square of shame’ because of the fact that this square is home to various sculptures and figurines which are stark nude; the Palermitans were so shocked to see all this at the opening day of this structure in 1575, such that they called it the ‘Fountain of Shame’, a nickname which has survived time.
Also called the Co-Cathedral of St. Mary of Admiral, Martorana – constructed in 1143 and sitting opposite to Palermo’s Piazza Bellini – is best known for its strikingly graceful Norman bell tower. Its western wall has some of the oldest and well-preserved mosaics that date back to the Norman era. One of the mosaics near the entrance to the church portrays King Roger II where he has been depicting wearing a Byzantine stole highly decorated with jewels, and the same sort of robes are worn by the archangels depicted along the ceiling. Sitting adjacent, San Cataldo –known for its simplicity – is absolutely opposite of La Martorana’ attractiveness.
