There on a holiday and saw the church at work- priest and worshipers. Amazing place- ancient building, stone ceiling. Small but well work a look.

A fascinating church in an interesting area. We had a brochure listing Agrigento's most significant churches. This would have been the smallest but it has been beautifully and sensitively restored with a simple interior. Still used as a worship centre it has features which allow visitors to see the foundations of the Greek temple beneath and from the side crypt.

It's worth searching this little church out. Simple decor but fascinating to see the remains of the Ancient Greek church underneath the present ne.

The church was built on top of an ancient temple. You can see the crepidome and part of the columns at the side of the church.The floor of the altar and part of the central nave are made of glass so you can see the temple below. The neighbourhood is also interesting, with streets made of stairs going up and down and children running.

This small church is worth going. You can see inside and also on the left side outside the greek columns on which the church was built. Somebody takes care of the little garden in front of the church with some attractive plants and flowers.
