From outside its splendor seems overshadowed by a typical Italian issue – no renovation in years. You might justifiably wonder, if this is yet another “dead church” that is closed down. No, it is not. I don't know what are the opening hours (and, as customary in Palermo, this is kept in secret = no information at the church). I just went there on Sunday before midday when there was a holy mass, so I easily got in. This church is definitely a must-see in Palermo – a beautiful, breathtaking baroque interior compensates for a possible difficulty to enter the temple. Don't forget to go forth, close to the altar. In the last chapel on the right hand side, there are boxes with (if I am correct) 27 relics of various saints, mounted around the Christi cross.
