A vast, beautiful Baroque church, immaculately kept, right on the Quattro Canti in the heart of Palermo. Extraordinarily imposing. A short visit will leave an indelible memory. Recommended.

Tucked away behind one of the corners of the Quattro Canti, we were lucky as it was open in preparation for a wedding later in the day. One of thecmost exuberant baroque interiors in Palermo, so well worth visiting.

The decoration in thes church are astounding - gold leaf covers half of the vaulted ceiling and the rest of ceiling and chapels is equally rich. The greatest contrast is to find beggars at every door, asking for pennies. The world is crazy.
