Monreale Cathedral  The Cathedral was built in 1174 by the Norman King William II. William's idea was to create an imposing structure that would surpass in beauty and grandeur the Palatine Chapel of Palermo and Cefalù Cathedral. Huge sums of money and human resources were utilized to build and decorate the structures. Work was completed in 1186, the year in which the bronze door by Bonanno of Pisa was installed.
