PHOTOS: The Incredible Byzantine Mosaics of the Cattedrale di Monreale


Beautiful, beautiful memories of Sicily this time last year.

The incredible Byzantine Mosaics in the Cattedrale di Monreale, perhaps one of the greatest extant examples of Norman architecture. And although not so refined as mosaics in Cefalù and the Palazzo dei Normanni, the cathedral interior contains the largest cycle of Byzantine mosaics extant in Italy. Have you visited Sicily before?
