Chiesa del Gesu, Palermo

#5 of 126 in Historic Sites in Palermo
Church · Tourist Spot
Gaze at the endless display of Baroque architecture and adornments inside Chiesa del Gesu. Hidden inside a misleadingly plain exterior, detailed carved marble inlays cover the walls like a mosaic among statues and columns.

Put Chiesa del Gesu and other Palermo attractions into our Palermo trip itinerary website, and watch your holiday take shape.
