This is the town my Dad's Grandfather (my Great Grandfather) lived in. It was destroyed in an earthquake in 1968, so they moved the city down the hill. Since the city was not completely destroyed, they have left the ruins accessible to anyone who is interested. Needless to say a lot of photos were taken here (there are some film ones I'll have to put up eventually!)
The first two photos are of the Fountain of Shame, as it is known locally, which was built originally for a villa in Florence but was moved to the city when the inhabitant of the villa was tight on cash.
The next three are of the Palermo Cathedral, whose facade is a fantastic mix of all the architecture of those cultures who lived in Palermo.
Palermo is a diverse and busy city, for sure. It was great fun to spend about two days in, but after that it got a little claustrophobic, so we set out on day trips.
