It is possible to enter there, but the main part is still on restoration. According the parts visible, has to be magnificent as the restoration would be complete

This is a fascinating medieval cathedral at the highest point in the old town of Agrigento. The interior is most unusual in that the architecture changes style as you go down the nave, from Norman, to gothic, to a wild baroque explosion of decoration in the presbyteries and apse. The church is stuffed with relics and monuments from its thousand-year history. Regrettably, big sections of the sanctuary were boarded off for renovations during our visit. There is a great view of the city and the sea beyond from the tower. Definitely worth a visit.

Some lovely features but not enough to hold attention for long. Would say it is worth popping in while wandering this beautiful city

As with many churches in Sicily, The Cathedral of San Gerlan is a mixture of different styles of the Norman & Baroque schools. The cathedral is very impressive and a joy to see especially the amazing Baroque elements. I recommend going up in the Bell Tower for a great experience of the spectacular views of Agriento. It's truly amazing.

In the first part of the church the style is Gotic Chiaramont; The presbytery is Baroque and Renaissance style is expressed onthe façade of the bell tower. Is a different monument, but very interesting.
