The archaic Palermo
A walk to discover archaic Palermo between history, legends, traditions, street food and views from above.
A journey full of emotion, from the triumphal arch of Palermo, dedicated to the victory of Charles V, to the tomb of Frederick II and his crusade in Jerusalem, from the vision of the angels from heaven to the vision of the myth of the dark arts practiced by an old alchemist, from the desecration of a square with nudity to the spiritual redemption of an admiral of the Norman King Roger II. from the merging of Arab culture with Christian culture to the culinary merging of the two.
The culinary fusion culminates in the historic "Il Capo" market, which has its roots in the Arab tradition, a tradition that can still be recognized today by the smells and colors of the market.
