A must-see

It is absolutely remarkable. Although seemingly simple from the outside, it is a marvel in the heart of the city.

Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior of this place, the inside is a mind-blowing explosion of frescoes and gold leaf. And gorgeous! Trust me.

Inside is a beautiful roof of stucco decoration real size human forms in plaster cover the ceiling. Marble altars and frescos adorn this church. Looks inconspicuous from the outside but wonderous inside. However, they did it defies understanding. The highest level... More

In the heart of the city of Palermo, in correspondence with the architectural attraction called "four corners" and major and important historical attractions of the city, this church is undoubtedly one of the most interesting of the city, even in it dominates the Baroque style. Fully accessible and out of ticket fee like probably some top churches in the city.... More

Don't let this gem slip by. Unassuming outside but when you open the door...WOW!!! Incredible Baroque edifice from the alter to the naves to the ceiling. Plan on spending some time here to soak it all in.

This church is a stunning collection of ornate artistry from the inlay work, to the painting, to the carvings. There is no rest for the eyes with a million details to see. It's hard to tell in some cases where one artisan left off and another began. Definitely worth seeing!!

A riot of baroque adorns the interior of this enormous church that forms one of the corners of the Quattro Canti in the heart of Palermo. Not open all day.

When in Palermo whichever church you go in is simply beautiful. Sicilian baroque is much more beautiful than baroque in rest of the Europe, as it is going to extreme. I was personaly not a big fan of baroque, but what I saw in Sicily changed my mind.

I'm English and my American wife has many relatives in Sicily so when we decided to get married in Sicily we looked around a few churches but to my mind this is the most spectacular in Palermo. The inside is really magnificent and I believe even more worth a visit than the Cathedral!
