A crazy little ‘square’, worthwhile experiencing by just standing on a corner and let the Sicilian world pass by. The mirror images of the statues is quite eerie.

Oh, what a beautiful city Palermo is! Quattro Canti is part of that charm: roads that create this lovely "four quarters" with lots of amazing details and interesting buildings around. A must!

Can't really miss this location in Palermo, where the two old main roads intercept creating 'four quarters'. Some great buildings at this point and a beautiful fountain.
