Palermo, Kathedrale Maria Santissima Assunta

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The church was erected in 1185 by Walter Ophamil (= Walter of the Mill), the Anglo-Norman archbishop of Palermo and King William II's minister.

The picture shows the westwork of the cathedral and the famous portico by Domenico and Antonello Gagini in Gothic-Catalan style, with three arcades, erected around 1465 and openening to the square.
