The Palatine Chapel (Italian: Cappella Palatina), is the royal chapel of the Norman palace in Palermo, Sicily. This building is a mixture of Byzantine, Norman and Fatimid architectural styles, showing the tricultural state of Sicily during the 12th century after Roger II's father and uncle conquered the island.
One of the most beautiful Chapel I've ever been. Stunning frescoes. It's magical.
An extraordinary chapel, one of the best in the world for its shining Byzantine mosaics. Commissioned by king Roger II of Sicily in 1132 it's on the list of the best sites to visit in Palermo.
We were excited to visit the Royal Palace because we wanted to see the many historic artefacts as described in the Welcome leaflet. After we had visited the Palestrina we were unable to visit other floors as these were all blocked off. This should have been explained on our purchase of tickets. People shoild not be charged full price if only one fifth of the Palace is available. It would also be helpful to tell visitors to keep their ticket handy as it is needed to exit the turnstile. Not really a good tourist experience when it could be so much more welcoming.
Another must see place at Palermo and another monument of medieval Norman culture and architecture. You are going to find stunning Normano - Byzantine mosaics of XII century inside. You have to buy a ticket to get in. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
Well preserved and a must-see in the area -- a must visit for anyone interested in medieval art and architecture. The mosaics in place are comparable to what you'd see preserved in museums from this period with Istanbul and its monuments the closest to the grandeur on exhibit here.
Lovely place. Be aware of the crowd. Go very early.
The Cappella Palatina......Private Chapel of the Norman Kings...during their rule of Sicily......a holy place for the unholy ....!!!!!
Fantastic chapel, gilded in gold and precious stones.
Definitely worth your time while you are in Palermo
An absolute must see... A testament to the marvels that happen when three civilizations leave their combined mark to a place in a harmonic way.
Excellent Visit. Beautiful.
Palatin Chapel is something quite unique, where architecture and design have origin in Byzantine, Islamic and Latin culture. Roger II ordered construction of the chapel after his coronation in 1130. Ticket incl. access to Royal Gardens for 9 Euro. We needed 2 hours for this activity.
Very nice but I'm not interested in old stuff. Here are some pictures in case you are wondering
Beautiful! Definitely worth a visit. So many influences and details you will be amazed.
Most beautiful place in the world. A must see!
