Unlike the Duomo, this church is in flamboyant Sicilian Baroque style in its interior decoration, as well as outside. Some eye-catching colourful ceiling paintings, a beautifully carved marble font and a lovely white wooden statue of the Madonna which is perfectly lit to emphasis its...More

The exterior is architecturally more interesting than the interior. There are more elaborate churches in Europe than this one. It is conveniently located by Via Entnea.
