The red domes of San Cataldo church overlook Via Maqueda and Piazza Bellini in Palermo. San Cataldo was built during the early-Norman era in the 1150s by Maio of Bari, William I’s top emir, or commander. Its red domes and elegant window details illustrate the unique Arab-Norman architectural style found only in Sicily.

  1. I love the Arab-Norman art and architecture influences in Sicily. I could spend a long, long time there just wandering and taking in all the history and beauty. ❤
