Persia or Palermo?


The Cloister of the Cathedral at Monreale is one of my most favorite places in Sicily. 228 uniquely designed columns and a bubbling fountain line the center garden. The Norman-Arab architecture leads you to believe you could be in ancient Persia. It’s beautiful and peaceful and has a story all its own.

  1. Lovely! I have a Persian friend I’m going to forward this to. I know she’ll like it – and probably be very surprised. <3

    1. Dana, I’ve been thinking of you all day! Glad you like the post. I love this place. Been asking all of the Madonnas we have encountered for blessings for you!

  2. Then it was the Madonnas and you that gave me the happy dreams last night! Thank you to all of the Madonnas, but especially to you, my sweet friend Allison. <3
