Tuesday Travels — Cefalu, Sicily

Tuesday Travels — Cefalu, Sicily.

What a beautifully written piece about a lovely moment of blessing in a faraway cathedral!

I follow “Soul Gatherings” and read it regularly.

This post caught my attention because the Christ the Pantocrator mosaic image from this cathedral in Sicily is so similar to the ones I saw this summer in Istanbul, Turkey at both Chora Church and at Hagia Sophia.

  1. I will look forward to that post! We also saw some amazing tile mosaics (also in Istanbul) that I will try to share in the near future. They built the museum around the floors. It is near the Blue Mosque if I remember correctly.
    I shared your post on my facebook page, too. ❤

  2. Thank you for this re-blog. The mosaics were stunning, as I’m sure they were in Turkey. I also visited Herculaneum for the first time (already went to Pompeii), and the mosaics and tiles still there in the baths and houses were breathtaking. Hopefully a post on that in the future.
