    A church, it is baroque, the front pretty well made. The Interior is very worked but also very white, no glitz here. But let's be honest, with all the churches of Sicily, you know - you? For information on the walks and the monuments I recommend downloading the application of free city (in English).

    The climb will take you devoutly walk towards Duomo starts here, but it's still worthwhile.

    Church of San Lorenzo (also known as the Church of Purgatorio-purgatory, since it is dedicated to the souls in purgatory) was built in the middle of the 17th century and is a luxurious Baroque monument. Stucco on the facade, paintings and sculpture inside the Church will not leave indifferent judges of Italian art. The truth is a little façade could be started and bring it into order.

  • Here there was a meeting of study among architects, we were fine. The Interior is very impressive, rich in decorative plasters, paintings and a fake dome preabsidale very impressive. Bears a fresco tromp oleyl (1767, Michele Narbone) that some excitement the suggests. 1650 Church is Baroque, the nave is enhanced by the presence of eight statues of the Serpotta representing its virtues.

  • The façade is in Baroque style, enriched by numerous statues, in particular those on either side of the portal, bordered by two spiral columns represent allegories of faith and love.

  • One of the many jewels of Agrigento in superb Baroque style.

  • Actually a wonderful Baroque church, however, a multimedia presentation runs in a continuous loop, which opened a even an impression of purgatory, but takes the view of the building there loudly.

  • Interiors and attractive, but the distinction is that it is one of the few churches in Agrigento, easy to get to!
