Palermo, the thousands facets of Sicily


Pomelia apartments are located a very short distance from Palermo, in a perfect position to enjoy the sea of the northern coast and visit the city. Palermo is a place of a thousand facets, a melting pot of cultures, traditions, architectures and history, which holds the different aspects of Sicily. One of these facets is of course the Arabic aspect of some palaces and churches, such as the Church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti. Not to mention the colourful and vivid markets of the city: the most famous are the market of the Kalsa district and the Vucciria market, where you can breathe the true essence of Sicily. Here you can lose yourself among the most typical Sicilian flavours and scents, and find the specialties of the local street food, such as the pane con le panelle (a typical bread with chickpea flour croquettes) and the pani câ meusa (another typical bread with veal spleen). In these markets you can also find vegetables and a great abundance of fresh fish coming from the local port. The Vucciria market is one of the most picturesque corner of the whole Sicily. Moreover, in each street of Palermo you can find artworks: from the majestic Cathedral to the Teatro Massimo, from the Quattro Canti to the Fontana Pretoria, as well as Palazzo dei Normanni and the several noble residences of the city.
