  • Convento dei Frati Cappuccini the convent is next to the monumental cemetery of Francavilla. On the ground floor of the sixteenth-century monastery, is the ' museum of Franciscan testimonials '. A place of remembrance where the history has been preserved. In the hallway are the cells, tight and bald, the environment in which the brothers spent part of their time. The celtijd was especially for study, reflection and prayer. One cell is decorated for the "trek" of Joseph and Mary and you find a wooden cradle with shepherds, created by late 19th-century paper. Striking is the landscape, which the Etna with the lava and the Alcantara Gorge. The monastery of Francavilla is still completely intact, with the old cells on the sides of the corridor and on the walls pictures of Saints. There are also many utensils from the life and work of brethren. There is a kitchen, a tannery and a winery. Also the old cistern, who still collects the water from the roofs of the monastery is still in tact, the pantry where the brothers did the few food resources they had. The mouse traps were the only defensive weapon to prevent the few stocks were eaten. Everything is old, but would be a duster turn. For the entrance fee you do not to let €2.50 pp

  • But fussy woman who suddenly didn't understand one word of English, so is the place really worth a visit. Especially recommended opening hours before the break. I.e. 11-13, because then this is the place to be utrendørs when Ave Maria by Schubert ljomer from speakers from the opposite side of the Valley after the church bells have died down after the ringing of the Angelus at 12. Never experienced anything similar. Also, be sure to stroll through the municipal graveyard on the way to or from. The cemetery is open regardless of the monastery.
