Monreale is a town and comune in the province of Palermo, in Sicily, Italy. It is located on the slope of Monte Caputo, overlooking the very fertile valley called "La Conca d'oro" , famed for its orange, olive and almond trees, the produce of which is exported in large quantities. The town, which has a population of approximately 30,000, is about 15 kilometres inland of Palermo, the capital of the island.
Monreale forms its own archdiocese and is renowned for its Norman-Byzantine cathedral. This has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, part of a group of nine inscribed as Arab-Norman Palermo and the Cathedral Churches of Cefalù and Monreale.
