Palermo Cathedral

The Palermo Cathedral is formed by the elongated and longitudinal body of the nave and the compact body of the sanctuary with a double transept. This expedient, already present and experimented in the Monreale Cathedral, is of even greater important in Palermo, and is also reflected in the external volumetric structure. There is therefore a clear tendency towards horizontality, especially in the apsidal façade with its succession of flat and curved surfaces.
