“Charmed by that baroque church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I'm not fond of baroque style, but was stunned by that church. I spent a lot of time watching all that work that was done in there. It worths a look.

“Amazing art work”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The outside was the usual crumbly Palermo building, but when we opened the doors, we were blown away by the ornate carvings, marble, paintings, statues and more. Not to be missed.

“Wow! Gorgeous.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

You are already at Quattro Conti - the intersection of Via Maqueda and Vittorio Emanuelle, just pop down and see this church. You will not be disappointed. The little Bar Professa right on the corner is great, too.
