Association Arte&Fede rents the e-bikes in this church. They seem very good option, as the city has a lot of hills and electric help is necessary. They are also not pricy, like 20 euro per day. BUT. They are not insured. So if some one...More

The walking tour of old Agrigento is basically a tour of churches of which this is one. Really it is nothing special, and once you have seen one church who wants to see another nine?

The church is adjacent to the main road through the old part of Agrigento and easily reached on foot. A flight of stairs leads up to the entrance. The church has a nice interior with white sculptures. One can enjoy a drink or an ice...More

The church was closed, but I have never previously heard of calling a church after purgatory before. It is a shame not to have seen inside

Beautiful sculpting and artwork - spoiled somewhat by the are exhibits on the side walls which does fit with the flavor of the church.

I arrived on a Sunday evening in Agrigento. With most things closed, I decided to go into this church. Everything was dark at first, but when the service began, the church lit up to reveal absolutely gorgeous paintings. I felt like the heavens were opening...More

This was my introduction to the sculptor Serpotta (you will see a lot of work by that family in Sicily). Delicate white statues of the Virtues line the walls. Overall much more tasteful than the Baroque you see in other parts of Italy.

The church is quite decorative but what makes it most interesting is the below glass floor with pre-Christian relics.
