    It's a fantastic cathedral from the outside, it has a great view from the roof and it is beautiful on the inside.
    We visited in May 2022 on a weekday and there are restoration works going on inside and some scaffolding outside but no sign of any work being done on the 4 days we were there.
    It is set in a small square which like the church is open at 7.30am. The roof etc don't open until 10. This makes little sense as the early morning would be a much better time to see it.
    We got there just before 10 and there were plenty of people there and it is busy all day. I would recommend getting that first slot as it just gets busier after that.
    Well worth it, I can't see why they don't do more and the scaffolding will be there forever if no one ever uses it.

    This is a lovely cathedral and if you are interested in history a really great example of the Norman architecture in Sicily. You can climb the tower with a spectacular view. Some of the stones outside have the mason's signs visible so look out for those! And try to find the pillar with Noah!

    This is a small church that only allows a few people in at a time. It has its charm and is a nice complement to the two other churches in the square.

    Don't be fooled by the relatively bland exterior. The interior is absolutely beautiful. The walls are adorned with statues of the saints and the ceiling is the piece de resistance.

    When poor Sicilians couldn't afford doctors their only resort was their faith and a pilgrimage up Mount Pellegrino to Saint Rosalia's sanctuary. The views driving up are spectacular for tourists but that's not what people on their knees going the pilgrim's way saw or why they went. The grotto of baby's bibs and motor bike helmets bespeak sadder, more basic concerns that people still do not rely solely on modern medicine to solve. St Rosalia, patron saint of Palermo, died aged only 35 in 1566, her short life controversial because women were not supposed to live as hermits in caves. Look up to where the limestone cave claws its way and see the eccentric plumbing that channels drips away from pilgrims' and visitors' heads.

    Baroque heavily ornate sanctuary with polished marble pillars and 3D reliefs. 3 euro admission. Beautiful tiled courtyard of lemon and orange trees and roses and fountain. Look up at the nuns balconies and old bell tower.
    Delicious elegant pastry shoppe, fairly priced.

    Sweet littl0e chapel well looked after and with well laid out pizza with plenty of parking space which is badly needed because of the narrow access road. The pizza offers magnif2ident views towards Panarea and Stromboli and if you are lucky for the priest who looks after it to be around, it will be open and it is worth visiting on the inside where there is the original altar painting which was uncovered when the present one was taken down for restoration. It i1s also a good pit stop if you driving around Lipari

    A very beautiful church but in the heat, the way up is daunting. Many cafes around it so you won't die of thirst. Go slowly going down--it's steep.

    It's quite stunning and impressive from the outside. The grand stairs leading up to the baroque building is quite impressive. The interior although understated compared to other cathedrals is still wonderful. It's no surprise this area of Noto achieved UNESCO status.

    Totally worth paying the full price ticket so that you access to all areas. You will not regret for the awesome beautiful views of the surrounding you shall enjoy without climbing too steep steps. Dun forget to include a listening guide (good for someone like me who’s too lazy to read) when you visit without a guide., otherwise you wouldn’t be able to understand the sights. Spent 2 hours without regrets

    A beautiful walk to a beautiful church, in a beautiful location with beautiful views! That alone should entice anyone, but the fact that this is THE church used in Godfather part one wedding filming is unmissable!

    UNESCO world heritage site in front of the Church of Admiral. The former is smaller and less decorated than the latter, but still you should visit it to discover and understand the Norman Arab Byzantine culture. Highly recommended.
