Arab Norman Unesco sites and Art Nouveau in Palermo

The Normans ousted the Arabs from Sicily in 1090, they were impressed by what they found, and rather than destroying Arabic culture, they embraced it. The Normans expanded and added to many existing buildings, using Arabs craftsmen for the work. The Palatina Chapel, an amazing chapel with byzantine mosaics, built under Roger II. The Cathedral and cloister in Monreale are great examples of this style. The churches of San Giovanni degli Eremiti, Martorana, San Cataldo, are crowned with a series of red domes mounted on cubic towers. Zisa and Cuba, built by William II, were clearly inspired by Fatimid period buildings in Cairo. While these are all in Palermo, there are many other splendid examples in Sicily, including the Cathedral of Cefalù. Arab-Norman sites in Palermo, Cefalù and Monreale, proclaimed World Heritage sites by Unesco in 2015.

Palermo is also an Art Nouveau style city. At the beginning of the XX century, many theatres and villas were buildt in Art Nouveau, thanks to the work of the architect and designer Ernesto Basile, committed by the famous Florio family.

Street Food in Palermo

According to the newspaper Forbes, Palermo is one of the World’s top 10 cities for Street Food. In Palermo Street Food would be “Pani ca meusa” (cooked spleen inside a sandwich), “Panelle” (fried chickpea flour), “arancina” (rice ball with meat or ham and cheese), sfincione (focaccia with onion and tomato). Palermo is also famous for Cannoli, (crispy cookie stuffed with fresh ricotta cheese) and also for ice cream.

Panelle e crocchè, pani ca meusa (milza), sfincione, arancina. Ecco, questo è il tipico cibo di strada palermitano. Palermo è quinta nella classifica mondiale dello Street Food secondo la rivista americana Forbes. Palermo è inoltre famosa per il Cannolo alla ricotta e il gelato.

Cefalù & Madonie Mountains

In Sicily there are many beautiful towns settled in such amazing landscapes. The countryside, like Madonie Mountains, is an area where people live and work, not just a natural reserve, meaning that you can combine hiking with visits to historic towns and meals in some of Sicily’s best places. Cefalù is a very pretty medieval town near the sea, 90 km far from Palermo, with a great Arab-Norman Cathedral (Unesco site with Palermo and Monreale).
