    Located on one side of the piazza di Avola antica stands the chiesa madre, dedicated to Saint Nicholas, atop a staircase surrounded by statues. Beautiful example of Baroque, more linear in interior decoration, worthwhile to visit the crypt.

    In the large square of Avola stood out, although in a somewhat sheltered, the Chiesa madre dedicated to Saint Nicholas, a beautiful church struggling to hold their own with the baroque of the nearby towns such as Known where this style triumphs. Its lines are more linear, even inside that at first glance looks pretty barren. To the left of the main altar, through a ladder you can access the underground crypt where are visible the couloirs which deposited the bodies to facilitate the natural mummification. In the crypt there is also a walled entrance which leads into the dungeons where lie the mummified bodies of the deceased of past centuries, not visible because the access it would lack the necessary security.

    The city square and the church which dominates it are a must visit. Take a walk around the old city centre and enjoy a typical Almond Granita made from local almonds. You won't regret it!!  more »
