Palermo - Phoenicians, Greeks, Arabs, and Normans.

Virtual Experience (Recorded)

Palermo, a city shaped by the hands of Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and Normans over 28 centuries, stands as a testament to the convergence of Mediterranean cultures. Initially founded as Ziz by the Phoenicians, it later bore witness to the influences of Greeks and Romans, earning the name Panormus. In the medieval period, between the 9th and 12th centuries, Palermo flourished as the capital of the Emirate of Sicily during the Arab conquest. The Normans, upon their conquest, transformed Palermo into the capital of their kingdom, creating a vibrant cultural hub where Byzantines, Christians, Arabs, and Jews coexisted harmoniously for a brief yet impactful century.

This unique amalgamation of cultures gave rise to enduring architectural marvels. The Palazzo dei Normanni, home to Europe's oldest parliament still in operation, boasts the resplendent Cappella Palatina—a Christian chapel adorned with Islamic and Byzantine influences, a visual and spiritual delight. Palermo's churches, palaces, music, and cuisine narrate the tale of the great Normans who governed diverse cultures as one.

Embark on a virtual journey to explore the cathedrals of Palermo, Cefalù, and Monreale, as well as the enchanting Cuba and Cubula—a magnificent leisure villa surrounded by exotic gardens and waters. Immerse yourself in the timeless legacy of Palermo, where each stone tells a story of resilience, diversity, and cultural harmony.
