You will continue your tour exploring the majestic Cathedral, built in the 12th century on the site of the ancient Arab mosque. Inside you will also be able to see the Royal Tombs and climb up to the rooftops, from where you can enjoy a splendid view of the city. You will then arrive at the Royal Palace, or Palazzo dei Normanni, where you will be enchanted by the Palatine Chapel and the marvellous mosaics that decorate its walls.
Near the Royal Palace stands the church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti, characterised by its geometrical appearance and its five red domes, with its striking cloister.
