  • We arrived in front of the Cathedral at thirteen and found the front door locked. We informed a local what time would open and they said it wouldn't open at 16.00. (how sad). Anyway we waited until the opening hours in order to finally visit. I couldn't tell if it was worth the wait all this time.

  • According to legend, a ship that carried to England of the columns for the construction of a church in honor of Saint Thomas of Canterbury, driven by winds wrecked in Marsala, people thought it was a sign of heavenly and so will use those columns to a temple in honor of the English. Closer to reality is that the cult of Thomas Becket is due to Joan Plantagenet, daughter of King Henry II of England, who wanted to atone for the sins of the father accused of killing Bishop of Canterbury, while celebrating mass, thus consecrate the Holy churches in Sicily, when he arrived in Sicily to marry William II. Mighty outwards that dominates the city's main square with the two side steeples surmounted by a dome under which lie the four statues of St John the Baptist, Saint Thomas, San Leo and San Gregorio Magno. The three-nave Interior adorned by works of Gagini, as the Madonna del Popolo and icon. Interesting the purification of the Virgin by Antonello Riccio.

  • Great location and nice for those who have a minimum of feeling for religious issues. Impressive is the right word.
