“very beautiful, impressive, good location must go in and have a look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

must go, anyway in the middle of the city.
the church is very beautiful (especially the ceilings) and people there are very open , with a free tour we saw a show (starting from 17th century) with the painting coming down and the sculpcures behind showing slowly. there is acutually a real arm from a priest in front of one sculpture.

“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.
