“We almost missed this hidden Gem in Palermo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

This church looks nothing from the outside but it must have one of the most spectacular decorated interiors I have ever seen. Baroque gon mad! the richness of the decoration together with the sculpter and painting is just breathtaking. The ceiling frescoes and the decorated dome are class. The many alters and marble sculpters are fantastic. Not a square centimeter has been left undecorated. A must see if you visit Palermo. Its in the centre of the city, off the Via Vittorio Emanuele on Via Guiseppe Mario Puglia. Ask your hotel to mark it on the map. Don't leave Palermo without visiting Santa Chiara
