San Giovanni degli Eremiti, Palermo

Many congratulations to the city and Province of Palermo, whose most important Arab and Norman buildings were collectively named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site at a meeting in Bonn today. The Palermo buildings are: The Palazzo dei Normanni,  the Palatine Chapel,  the Church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti,  the Church of Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio [Martorana],  the Ammiraglio Bridge, San Cataldo Church, Palermo Cathedral, the Zisa Castle and The Cuba Palace. The Cathedrals of Monreale and Cefalù also form part of this new World Heritage site.

This is the 51st UNESCO World Heritage Site in Italy and the 7th in Sicily.

Duomo, Cefalù

Excellent. I think I'll manage to tick all those boxes in September.

At least, that's the plan!

Glad you think so too, thebigmoj. Hello, WY. I do hope you manage to see them. Cefalù is my favourite.
