Touring Monreale Cathedral

It is said that in 1171 the Norman King William II, very devoted to the Madonna, during a hunting trip was struck by sudden fatigue and fell asleep under a carob tree.

That sleep, in addition to restoring his tired limbs, was the source of an incredible revelation.

In fact, Madonna appeared to him in a dream and revealed that a treasure of inestimable value was hiding just under that tree.

Upon his awakening the King had the tree cut down, had it dig deep and when gold was found he decided to have a church built in honor of the Madonna.

During the same period another important building site was open.

In fact Gualtiero Offamilio, then archbishop of Palermo, was having the Cathedral of Palermo built.

There was rivality between the King and the archbishop.

So both, overwhelmed by delusions of grandeur and the desire to overcome the other, spared no expense and indulged in phantasmagoric projects.

Amazement, wonder, admiration.

These are just some of the pleasant sensations that are felt in front of this extraordinary and unmissable masterpiece.
