Cappella Palatina Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The chapel of the Norman palace is a magnificent construction, built by Roger II between 1130 and 1140. The building achieves a perfect combination of Saracen, Byzantine and Norman art, bearing witness to the Norman sovereigns' tolerance towards other religions. Note the extraordinary Islamic-corbelled muqarnas wood ceiling, a masterpiece by North African craftsmen, and the exquisite Byzantine mosaics that decorate the interior.

    Review information

    • Language: fra
    • Position : Alone



    Entre les touristes et les scolaires, il y a beaucoup de visiteurs et donc une belle file d'attente à certaines périodes. Mon conseil : arriver vers 12h30 en semaine ou vers 9h le dimanche matin, ce qui vous permettra d'être quasiment seul dans ce bel endroit !
