Fringed by imposing churches and buildings, Piazza Pretoria is dominated by the over-the-top Fontana Pretoria, one of Palermo's major landmarks. The fountain's tiered basins ripple out in concentric circles, crowded with nude nymphs, tritons and leaping river gods. Such flagrant nudity proved a bit…

in Palermo we called the fountain of Piazza Pretoria, Piazza (square) of the Shame because the fountain is surrounded by nude statues!

Cuore della città cinquecentesca, la piazza è dominata dalla bellezza rinascimentale della fontana, ideata per una villa toscana e poi montata a Palermo da Camillo Camilliani

La fontana ruota attorno ad un bacino centrale circondato da quattro ponti di scalinate e da un recinto di balaustre, l'elevazione piramidale è costituita da tre vasche coassiali da cui prende l'avvio il gioco d'acqua, elemento versato dalla sommità da un Bacco, nella rimodulazione palermitana…

“The Royal Palace of Palermo (11th-12th centuries) is the main monument to represent the wealth and political and cultural power of the Norman kingdom, a model of Arab-Norman architecture. An ancient Islamic Castrum erected on pre-existing Punic origins, from 1072 it became the residence of the Norman sovereigns. Its Torre Pisana (second quarter of the 12th century) is a unique example of a fortified tower, similar to those of the Norman donjon, whose plan is similar to ifriqeni Islamic models. La Joharia (mid-12th century) includes Sala dei Venti and Sala di Ruggero. The Sala dei Venti, or of the four columns, derives its architecture from the durqa'a, the inner courtyard of the Islamic ifriqeni and Fatimid palaces. It is preserved intact and is in fact one of the best preserved examples of this architectural typology in the medieval Mediterranean. Sala di Ruggero is characterized by impressive mosaics that cover the walls and the cross vault with profane, hunting and paradisiac scenes. The mosaics of Stanza di Ruggero, together with the fragments preserved in the Pisan Tower and the mosaic panel of Sala della Fontana in Palazzo della Zisa, are rare examples of profane decorations, distinguished by the significant presence of figurative elements derived from Islamic and Sassanid culture.. A widespread genre in the Byzantine courtly world of which today there are no traces except in historical sources.”

“Jesus's Church is one of the most important Baroque churches of Palermo and Sicily. After almost two years of restoration, the building was reopened for worship in 2009. The Jesuits began the construction of the Church attached to the main one (Casa Professa) in the late sixteenth century, in a place traditionally considered a refuge for hermits, including St. Calogero, still center of early Christian catacombs. The building, a large transept and nave with side chapels, was designed by the Jesuit Giovanni Tristano. At the beginning of the seventeenth century, to adapt it to the needs of the grandeur of worship, designed by Natale Masuccio, were shot down the dividing walls of the chapels, getting three aisles. In 1892, the Church was declared "National Monument". During the Second World War a bomb fell on the dome and in the collapse, dragged most of the paintings of the presbytery and the transept. The interior is an important example of the fusion between architecture, painting and plastic decoration "a maschio", a valuable marble inlays, made with floral motifs or figurative. The most spectacular part of the building is perhaps the tribune apse, adorned by Shepherd Adoration (1710-1714) and Magi Adoration (1719-1721), marble bas-reliefs on the grandstand seats, by Gioacchino Vitagliano.”

“A Norman church refurbished many times in other periods. It looks baroque outside but once you get in you'll find the most stunning and precious bizantine mosaics of the Norman period. This church is a must see in Palermo, together with the other two in the same piazza!”
