Cloister of the cathedral of Monreale

Highly recommended
The cloister is surrounded by a series of ogival arcades resting on fine twin columns, presenting encrusted multi-coloured mosaics of Eastern inspiration. The Romanesque capitals are worth a visit in their own right. They depict episodes from the Bible and allegorical or simply decorative figures, all of which are highly original. In the southwest corner there is a small cloister inside the larger one, accommodating a fountain.
