  • The visit of the beautiful historic centre of Agrigento we initiated by this church immediately above Via Atenea; first of all a big thank you to the gentleman, very polite and prepared; the Interior impresses especially for eight allegorical statues attributed to Giuseppe and Giacomo Serpotta, but also for its brightness and elegance. The façade is not negligible.

  • It is worth knowing that Church, albeit by the surprise that it produces that name. Purgatory...

  • 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).

  • Exquisite facade with impressive sculptural works, friendly staff and a beautiful interior.
  • Nice outside It was closed saturday afternoon
  • Very interesting the whole Church, but a small dose of attention at statues attributed to Serpotta is a must. Are statues representing so very loyal local Sicilian beauties. Faces that are strolling down the via Atenea.

  • Purgatory church or San Lorenzo (now Deconsecrated) XV-XVI century in Baroque style. Inside the building, with a single nave, has sculptures given traditionally to Giacomo Serpotta. The ceiling has a false dome.

  • 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.
