Nice place to visit....recommended. There are only a few places to visit in Monreale and this is one of them. Apparently on Sundays you can park on the blue lines without paying.

This is the square in front of the main entrance to the Duomo, and because of that it's very picturesque and pretty. Nice fountain adding to the beauty.

You cannot miss this square with a fountain in a middle, because from there is the main entrance to the marvelous Duomo. Apart from that, it's an average square like everywhere else. Don't suggest sitting in cafes around it, because of the inflated prices due...More

Attractive main square, perfect to look at the Normad style facade of the main cathedral. An attractive fountain stands in the middle of the square. Great pizza place on the far side of the square.
