Chiesa Di San Cataldo

The other 12th century century church, a former royal chapel originally, is the Chiesa di San Cataldo. It was the chapel of a castle, now gone, then a property of the Benedictines, then a royal post office; more recently it is of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. And, most importantly, it is Palermo's artistic/cultural symbol, the city's emblem. It is defiantly sparse, more dramatically so.


A little background

A marvel of understatement

Interesting that the two churches from the same era are so different.
