San Giovanni degli Eremiti

Recommended
Commissioned by Roger II (12C), San Giovanni degli Eremiti and its luxuriant garden is an oasis of freshness and tranquillity. One of Palermo's most famous churches, it is a simple angular structure surmounted by five domes, evidence of the Arab know-how behind the Arab-Norman style. The interior is sober and void of ornamentation; the hustle and bustle of the city seems a world away.
