There's not much i like from the baroque period (besides maybe Scarlatti), but the baroque churches of Sicily are different, less cluttered, yet more elegant. The chiesa San Giuseppe has a bright and delicate interior. Very soothing.

It seems that in March, which is a bit early in the season i believe, few churches are open to the public. San Giuseppe was and I was pleased to visit it.

A nice church with a great facade in a quiet little square. The interior is (in my opinion) nicer than the Duomo up the hill. Well worth a visit

A gentle walk through the old town & you come across the Chiesa San Giuseppe, free to access. An ice cream to cool off between the buildings & an easy, yet lazy afternoon.. Enjoy, I know I did

We enjoyed this Chiesa MORE than the Duomo. The facade is gorgeous and the piazza SO pleasant. Take a deep breath when walking the town and savor the moments you are here.
