“Beautiful ruins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Rich with history, the ruins of this church are romantic and picturesque and well kept. There are concerts held there, I imagine it is a great place to hear music under the arches of the ruined roof, under the stars.

We are very impressed by what we experienced here. Every single stone has its own meaning. A must visit site in Palermo.

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

Make sure you don't miss an evening concert in this unbelievable setting...such an extraordinary experience... sound and architecture and history and nature, and starry night all in the same place...a church witout a ceiling and with a huge tree inside, reaching the stars with its branches...
and then come back during the day, to appreciate the architectural forces in its stone nerves...and then come back at night again, because once you came, you feel forced to come back
