Sitting next door to the town hall and fitting perfectly in the piazza, this church is a fine example of Sicilian Baroque and infuses a sense of calm. Worth a visit.

This imposing church is situated on the centrally located Via Penne. It has a magnificent Baroque frontal façade and is accessed up an imposing set of steps. Once inside it is bright and white with a spectacularly painted ceiling. Pride of place goes to very large painting with a dark background of Christ wearing a skirt which is a representation of a chalice if it is viewed upside down!
Well worth a visit

This is worth looking at - one of the many churches which look so impressive. We didnt know the significance of anything so probably lost out on its value

This jewel of Sicilian Baroque is located on the pedestrianised Via Penna just along from the town hall. The wonderful exterior architecture dates from the 1760’s and the interior decorations, such as stucco and gilding date from 1854.
It’s worth visiting just for the ceiling decoration alone, and although a lot smaller than the Dormas in Modica and Ragusa it is just as impressive inside.
