Not worth the entry charge whatsoever. What remains of the church and cloister is quite beautiful and the surrounding gardens enjoyable, but an 8€ entrance fee seems way off base.
Excellent monument of medieval Norman culture and architecture. Unfortunately original interiors were missing. But very beautiful cloister survived.
Quiet place. Beautiful arcades
Easily the biggest waste of money in Palermo. We were expecting much more for the amount they charge, instead it was just a garden with a small empty building and closed off entrances.
Not worth the 6 euro fee. Probably not even worth a stop if it were free.
They reduced it to 6 euros but it's still not worth the price unless it's stinking hot
Compared to other churches in Palermo, this is best viewed from the street and save 6€ entry. Very disappointing to see the entry fees are not used to maintain the gardens etc.
It's astonishing how some foreign tourists or even Italians are ready to criticize a fare ticket of 6€ for one of the most beautiful architecture from arab - norman sicily, when in northern Europe I've visited roofless, mouldy castles where you can get charged over 10€ - I'm not kidding, I've paid over 10€ to just walk over some roofless rubble. Maybe Palermo deserves a different class of tourists!
Small temple park and inner courtyards - no frescoes, nothing particularly exciting. I would make it a low priority place to visit when in Palermo.
This Church is a bare ruin, so there are no frescos or mosaics, just the empty Church that is still standing, the garden and a column structure in the garden. Somewhat underwhelming at first, but this becomes a much more exciting visit if you climb the nearby belfry tower of the adjoining Church to get a view of the surroundings. Also see the grotta in the neighboring Church. I feel that if these 2 Churches worked together to create a combined ticket, it would provide a better experience for tourists and also drive business to both. St John has the fame to attract tourists, the adjoining Church has an amazing tower and a grotta which add more excitement to the visit.
Very nice garden and church. The church is a nice heritage from Normand period (built under Roger 2nd ), and was transformed into a mosque and then into a church...
Much more intetesting than the famous Palace just near of it. The little garden and the cloister are very beautiful.
