Overview
More
The Church of the Virgin of the Chain, one of the oldest in the village of Gangi, was probably built between the fourteenth and fifteenth century. The title stems from the cult of the Virgin of the Chain that spread in Palermo after a miraculous event. In 1392 three young men were sentenced to death, they invoked the Virgin Mary and their chains snapped. At the same time they heard a voice that said they were free. This event is represented on the bas-relief located on the plinth of the Virgin marble statue. Statua marmorea - XVI secolo In 1583 the Chapel dedicated to the Virgin of the Rosary (located at the bottom of the nave on the left ) was built. Its brotherhood doesn't exist anymore. In 1621 the brotherhood of the Virgin of the Chain was founded and it exists up to now. The church has got a nave with three altars on the left and three altars on the right. In the Presbitery there is the High Altar with the ligneous statue of the Virgin. On the left, in the Chapel having the same name, there is the ligneous group of the Virgin of the Rosary and the statue of Saint Dominic, a masterpiece of Filippo Quattrocchi, dated 1764. At the High Altar there are two tombstones, the one on the right, probably, comes from the grave of Giuseppe Salerno called the "lame of Gangi".
