Palermo

The street layout of the Albergheria section of Palermo dates back to the period of Arab (Saracen) rule of Palermo (827-1072). During the subsequent Norman period, many officials at the Norman court lived here. More recently, it has been quite run down, and bomb damage from WW II still is showing. In recent years, this has been an immigrant neighborhood where many Africans live today.
