Church of San Cataldo

Palermo City

The Church of San Cataldo  is a perfect example of then Arabian-Norman Architecture.

The Church of San Cataldo  is an Arab looking building block topped with three pinky domes. Simple and elegant inside with its original mosaic floor in porphyry and serpentine, this 12th-century small church is a perfect example of then Arabian-Norman Architecture. Built in 1154, it has undergone many changes throughout the centuries.  Fun facts of this church: in 1787 it was consecrated and turned into a post office! …and the distinctive three pinky domes we see today were actually an error of the restorations of the 19th century.
