In the 18th century two lateral wings were added, and a neoclassical dome. Inside the style is solemn, with majestic and at the same time plain royal tombs, where the bodies of Federico II and Constance of Aragon, Henry VI and Ruggero II lie.
Access to the tombs is on payment, as well as for the treasure and the crypt. Otherwise you can purchase a cumulative ticket for both visits. The Treasure consists of various props of civil and religious persons related to the Cathedral and the city.
