You will visit the medieval laundry, where women could gather to wash clothing in a series of large basins that line up in an unusual stepped sequence. You'll see the beautiful Santo Stefano Church, also known as the Church of Purgatory. Its delicately carved Baroque portal looks out onto a small square from atop a graceful double staircase with iron balustrades. Greenery and flowers make the square even more intimate. 

Your trip will continue on to Santo Stefano di Camastra, a lovely little village famous for its refined and historical tradition of ceramic production. The pretty and colorful ceramics are sold to visitors in the many shops along the streets of its center.

After the tour is finished, your driver will take you back to your accommodation in downtown Palermo.
