A MATCHLESS MIXTURE OF OPPOSING ELEMENTS
Travelers are always mesmerized by the incredible beauty of the city of Palermo and, above all, by its incomparable capacity to host an astonishing mixture of contraries.
The intense light of Palermo’ days, brought by the Mediterranean skies and winds, is constantly accompanied by its very opposite.
Candles and twilight inhabit the magnificent city’s churches, mystery dwells in the Palermo’s Capuchin Catacombs or in the narrow streets of the Kalsa neighborhood, just facing the sea and relentlessly caressed by a maritime breeze.
This unique atmosphere, made of colors and darkness, joyful voices and silence, glorious past and romantic decadence, comedy and tragedy….is the very essence of a place which has been dominated but also enriched by its innumerable invading powers such as the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Saracen Arabs, the Normans, the French, the Spanish…
From each of them, Palermo has managed to absorb the best. Today, this is tangible in its superb architecture, in its ancient Norman, Moorish, Gothic and Baroque palaces facing the sea, its bubbling markets, and in the faded grandeur that the famous Sicilian writer, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, so vividly conjured up in his novel, Il Gattopardo.
This city is, in fact, the living emblem of an intricate cultural syncretism which, over the centuries, has involved Greek, Islamic and Byzantine heritages, just to mention the most significant ones.
A CITY OF PERFUMES AND FLAVORS
To visit Palermo is, above all, a sensorial experience. Its uniqueness can be perceived even if a visitor walks around the city with closed eyes. Palermo’s gardens, often nestled between the walls of ancient aristocratic villas, spread the intense fragrance of jasmine, magnolia, lemon and orange trees. From the sea comes a light saline breeze which mingles itself with the intriguing perfumes of the fruits, meat and fish sold in the famous Vucciria Market.
And then comes the incredible Palermo’s cuisine, a perfect fusion of all the different gastronomic traditions acquired over the last two millennia. Starters such as the “caponata” and the “gattò di patate”, pasta with sardines, fish, almond granite and innumerable deserts, as refined as the city’s history, will surprise and captivate all visitors.
