An elegant XII century cloister is annexed to the Cathedral.
The Mandralisca Museum preserves many important works of art, as for example the "Portrait of an Unknown Man" by Antonello da Messina, a Greek funerary inscription (I century B.C.) and the famous bell-shaped and "red figure" technique "Vase of the tuna salesman".
Finally, do not miss to visit the Medieval Washing place, entirely carved into the stone, the XVI century Gilmanna Sanctuary, the Castle della Rocca and the Osterio Magno, the legendary residence of King Roger II.
