Nice church located in an interesting neighbourhood. Palermo was a very surprising city and I can't wait to go back.

We were on a mediterreanen cruise visiting western mediterreanen sea and we visited the nice and beautifull cit of Palermo and then we visited this amazing and tantalising church.It is so artistically beautifull and all the figure are carved in marmor! It was breathtaking experience!

Getting away from the decay and uncleanliness of the Ballarò's area, a visit to the Chiesa del Gesù will brighten your visit and lift your spirits. Your particular religious beliefs, of lack of any, won't matter here. Even if you aren't a particular traveler who...More

Worth a visit. Very different to Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio so worth seeing as well. This is the only other church I'd see in Palermo as they all charge entry that adds up after a while.
