If you like the work of the great Caravaggio then you must not miss his masterpiece in this church. His use of light and of the canvas is something special.

Excellent guided tour by a guide who knew what she was talking about and was clearly interested in the place. There are three parts to the tour, the catacombs, the church and the tomb of Santa lucia.

another complaint about the tourist infrastructure...this lovely church is open in the off season from 11 to 14hrs and I had to wait until my 3rd day to be able to see inside! I know its probably mainly for the painting that most tourists come here but why they can't push the opening hours is a mistery. it is lovely inside.

Caravaggio's painting for art lover and Sta. Lucia for catholics.

Caravggio's lighting, triangle and self portrait and rapid painting style quite obvious in the restored painting at the center altar.

St. Lucy blindedn by the Catanins now adored.
