[IT]La Cattedrale[/IT][EN]The Cathedral[/EN]

Founded on an ancient basilica of the sixth century. This building was firstly one of the 500 mosques of Palermo. The king Ruggero II made this building a church, the most important church of the city. The Cathedral became a church in the Arabian-Norman typical architectural style. A mix of two cultures still visible in many sides of Palermo. The Cathedral was then modified but just in part. The main dome wad added some centuries later and the interior was modified as the neoclassical taste of the XVIIIth century asked in its own period. In the Cathedral are the rest of Santa Rosalia, the patron saint of the city, loved by everyone in Palermo. In the same church are also the tombs of who loved and made Palermo even more great than it was: Rutger II and Frederick II.
