In the church of San Giovanni Evangelista you will find very expressive and particular framework depicting a Christ with a white skirt. Single original in Italy, a similar painting is in Spain in Burgos. There is allays someone to help you and tell you a short touching story about the altars. The church is open until late. Very pleasant and peaceful visit

Another shining example of magnificent late Baroque in Scicli is Chiesa di San Giovanni Evagelista. The three-order harmonious facade matches the beauty of the bright interior richly decorated with elaborate stucco ornaments and beautiful central oval painting of the ceiling. Gorgeous church!

This is off the main pedestrian street in the town centre and it has a light uplifting interior that is well worth visiting.

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
