Drone-mounted camera provides unique “Angel’s-eye” perspective of a great cathedral

The Cathedral of Monreale, famed for its radiant golden mosaics, melds Roman Catholic and Byzantine styles.  The nave is like an Italian basilica, while the large triple-apsed choir is like an Oriental three-apsed church.  The basilica was commissioned by William II, king of Sicily, in 1174 and dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.
