Greek Icon Display

Over 40 Greek icons are on display at Palermo's Norman Palace until August 25th.

On loan from a museum in Athens, these treasures were salvaged over a century ago from St Nicholas Orthodox Church of Messina, claimed during the earthquake of 1908 which destroyed most of that city.

Also displayed are some manuscripts from the Byzantine Catholic Monastery of the Holy Savior.

Open hours are 8:30 to 5 Monday through Saturday, and 8:30 to 1 on Sundays.
