Palermo is a city in Insular Italy, the capital of both the autonomous region of Sicily and the Province of Palermo. The city is
noted for its history, culture, architecture and gastronomy, playing an important role throughout much of its existence; it is over
2,700 years old. Palermo is located in the northwest of the island of Sicily, right by the Gulf of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The city was founded in 734 BC by the Phoenicians as Ziz ('flower'). Palermo then became a possession of Carthage, before
becoming part of the Roman Republic, the Roman Empire and eventually part of the Byzantine Empire, for over a thousand years.
The Greeks named the city Panoremus meaning 'complete port'. From 831 to 1072 it was under Arab rule during the Emirate of
Sicily when it first became a capital. The Arabs corrupted the Greek name into Balarm, the root for its present-day name.
Following the Norman reconquest, Palermo became capital of a new kingdom (from 1130 to 1816), the Kingdom of Sicily.
Eventually it would be united with the Kingdom of Naples to form the Two Sicilies until the Italian unification of 1860.
The population of Palermo urban area is estimated by Eurostat to be 855,285, while its metropolitan area is the fifth most
populated in Italy with around 1.2 million people. In the central area, the city has a population of around 650,000 people.
Numerous tourists are attracted to the city for its good Mediterranean weather, its renowned gastronomy and restaurants, its
Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque churches, palaces and buildings. Palermo was one of the largest cities in the Mediterranean
and is now among the top tourist destinations in both Italy and Europe. Roman Catholicism is highly important in Palermitan
culture. The patron saint of the city is Saint Rosalia.
