Church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti

San Giovanni degli Eremiti

The campanile and the five red domes of San Giovanni degli Eremiti. The church was built by Roger II in 1132–48, now deconsecrated. The Norman Palace can be seen in the background. The cloister (13th century) has twin columns bearing pointed arches like the cloister in Monreale.
