The palace is also known as a Palace Church or Palace Chapel, commissioned by Roger II of Silicity in 1132. The most famous thing to notice in the palace is its mosaics, covering all the internal walls and its pulpit standing on the carved pillars decorated with inlay work and the lecterns carved with symbols of the Apostles Mark and John. 
  • La Martorana – It was originally designed as a domed church with four arms of equal lengths and a chancel with three apses but later, it went through some modifications like a narthex, vestibule, and a bell-tower was added on the building. The church was equipped by King Roger’s Syrian Emir, George of Antioch. The delicate pillars of the church support a domed cupola symbolizing Christ consecrated amid his archangels. The church’s interior looks best in the morning when the sunlight drops on the walls and illuminates the charming Byzantine mosaics.
