  • Although it wasn't my parish, attending, except Sundays, during the week with my friends and fraternal schoolmates or games. I intended to go back to pray and found it impressive, more beautiful than I remember, after I left the country in search of fortune, as most of my friends. I found serenity within minutes of silence, remembering the years of youth spent in Oratory, where we prepared a few reads. I reviewed and there I walked over, the outside, facing Piazza Roma, redoing the stairs, that part which she saw as "employer voice" to the Apostle Peter, in the recitation of the ECCE AGNUS DEI, filmed by Italian television. On the way back, along with the memory of so many episodes spent UNDER HIS SHADOW, "sutta the ummira do Campanaru" strolling in the square along with many loved ones, I could go back to that time for a few years. The dreams of every person advanced in years! Visit It, It Costs Nothing!

  • The mother church of Biancavilla beautiful in all its splendor contains the statue of the Virgin of charity today arrived at the Vatican under the Pope's request and leil arm of san placido is beautiful and always clean

  • Sweet sanctuary in the heart of Biancavilla, which contains the story of the first Albanian refugees fleeing persecution to preserve their faith. Inside you can admire the ancient effigy of our Lady of Charity, tucked into a precious silver, gold and precious stones. Shame about the inner walls of the Church color baby pink that jar somewhat with the rest, but I really appreciated the general context.

  • Built in the late 15th century and early 16th century, was extended during the 17th century with the addition of three existing aisles, stretched then other three bays in the eighteenth century. The façade is from the late 19th century, the Bell Tower of the milanese Carlo Sada. The Interior has a Latin cross with three naves. Very interesting baroque chapel dedicated to St. placidus, frescoed in the eighteenth century by the painter Giuseppe Tamo da Brescia.

  • I recommend going to visit the Basilica and the beautiful chapel dedicated to the Saint Patron of Biancavilla: San Placido.

  • We can see here a plank of cedar wood depicting the Madonna of Charity, with characteristically oriental. The Church was designed by architect Carlo Sada of the late 19th century.

  • Beautiful church, both outside and inside. But the thing that I can think of is the chapel dedicated to Saint Placid, wonderful fresco. Truly beautiful.
