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!

We visited a couple of times. First, in the evening then cam back the next day to see the mosaics with better light. Not in the category of the grand European cathedrals, but worth a visit nevertheless.

Take some time to wander quietly in this impressive church. Every little patch adorned in such a voluptuous manner. The angels in the ceiling seem to reach out.

As with Chiesa del Gessu, this church is another example of intricate marble work. Perhaps not quite as ornate is it certainly stunning in it's own right. Again, certainly worth a half hour of your time on the church trail.

This church faces the famous Bellini Square. It is possibly the most beautiful church in town. Once you're inside, you will get stunned at the richness of its fabulous decoration.
