Mysteries of Palermo: Description of the guided tour

The guided tour of Find Sicily will start at 9:30 from Piazza Bellini where our guide will introduce you to the Church of Martorana and San Cataldo with its famous domes both considered World Heritage according to the recent UNESCO Classification. We will continue to Piazza Pretoria with the splendid Pretoria or Della Vergogna fountain that is so named by the people of Palermo because all the statues are represented nude. Among the various stories passed down orally by the people, there is one particularly curious about the Queen of Naples Giovanna D'Angiò, perhaps because of her propensity for equivocal relationships. It will be a show to cross the Quattro Canti with the famous octagonal widening at the intersection of the two main roads of Palermo: the Via Maqueda and the Cassaro. We will offer our guests a coffee break inside the Ballarò Market to taste some Sicilian confectionary specialties of which we have a literary testimony, such as cassata and cannolo. You will discover an ancient city with a deep charm but also characterized by unsuspected mysteries. In this regard we will visit the Oratory of San Lorenzo where we will let you know the mystery of "Caravaggio" and it will also be possible to visit Palazzo Steri, the protagonist of one of the most atrocious pages of the history of the city of Palermo, the inquisition.
