Saturday, September 17 - Mondello and Monreale

Then we were off by bus to Monreale, just south of Palermo. Bus parking was below the Cathedral so we taxied up to spare my knees. There we were conducted on a very thorough and excellent tour by Laura Lanza again. Since my pictures inside the Cathedral are a little fuzzy, I include here some postcard shots as well. The church is magnificent. It was built by the Normans in the 12th C. and has gold mosaics done by Byzantine and Arab crafstmen.
