The church is closed to the public but we travelled with Riviera whose guide (Rosario) had a private arrangement with the 86-year-old caretaker to open up the church just for us. (The tips made it well worth her while!) The stuccos by Giacomo Serpotta are really impressive, as are the trompe l'oeil windows and dome. The white stucco made the whole interior very light. In my opinion this was one of the best churches we visited whilst in Sicily. We also visited the nuns' 'shop' when we came out of the church, where some people bought marzipan biscuits, and then the adjacent cloisters.
