Constructed between the 12th and 18th centuries, Palermo Cathedral is in Palermo on the Italian island of Sicily.
It's notable for its different architectural styles incorporated over the centuries, including Medieval and Renaissance exterior decorations. The exterior is also known for its decorative main portico, with its three arcades.
Inside, the cathedral has a solar observatory which works by admitting light through a hole in one of the domes, and a chapel containing the relics of several saints.
It's also famous for its treasure house, which contains 16th and 18th century sacred vestments, Constance of Aragon's gold tiara and precious enamels, jewelry and embroidery.Places nearby:
