Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Marsala Cathedral is known as Chiesa Madre or Duomo di San Tommaso di Canterbury and is the largest church in Marsala. Externally, the Baroque facade towers over Piazza della Repubblica. Internally, one can admire the Norman style high altar and many beautifully decorated side chapels. Well worth a visit.

Another nice church, but nothing spectacular. Like the other churches we visited in Sicily, the interior is very plain with the exception of the alter.

Usual beautiful baroque interior but the surprise was finding the tribute to St Thomas a Becket, our Canterbury Martyr. There was even a card to carry away which I have scanned and deposited on this thread.

We stopped to take a look as they were preparing for a wedding. We didn’t want to interfere so moved quickly. Beautiful.

Beautiful church in a cute town with a real Sicilian feel to it. All of the older people here in town know each other and it’s just so nice to come to this church and get away from reality!

A Beautiful church set in the centre of the town square, you can't help looking at the exterior of this ancient 17th century landmarks as it has a presence that towers over the square. Inside the church you will find coolness from the hot day, the paintings and alter are also typical of 17th century style churches, however you will notice the grander of the church, as you will notice the baroque style that dominates the architecture.If you can catch a service on Sunday morning, you will get a chance to see how the locals congregate and have a sense of community.

This church is beautiful and has a lot of characteristics to it. We stopped in one Thursday morning after the morning prayers the parishioners and the priest were very friendly and glad to see new people coming the church to see it especially the 5year old girl that was with us.
The church has plaques on the wall in both Italian and English so you can read about the scenes and architecture of the building. They also have a brochure in English that's tells you everything you need to know about the building.
Another helpful tip is that is church is in the middle of the down town area of Marsala so you need to park and walk to it. Don't worry there's plenty to see along your walk and plenty of cafes to stop in.

As usual, it's a challenge to find these places open in Sicily, but the old church, though not on a scale with Monreale or Cefalu cathedrals, is certainly worth a look.

This is a church built during many centuries and refurbished recently. It is in a lovely square paved with shiny stone in the middle of town. It is frequently used during the day for mass, weddings and other functions
