  • Of remarkable dimensions, a church with an impressive Baroque façade and an interior aisles which houses large and small treasures worth see floor plan

  • A small big city full of tradition, history, culinary and wine art, decorative art and Greek ... However don't expect to find the largest Church of the Cathedral of Palermo! Imposing Baroque façade, dominates the front of piazza, becomes a character. Enter and the first impact is dissonant than outside, three aisles with comprehensive altars, seemingly bare. Then you begin to follow it and slowly reveals itself full of treasures. Especially the statues, reliefs and paintings. The family Gagini has graced this place of worship and in our opinion the surgery done to completion of the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament is truly a masterpiece. A low stone relief that for its delicacy seems to Alabaster! Dedicated to Tommaso di Canterbury. Tradition has it that a ship carrying columns for the building of a church in England, dedicated to Thomas Vescoso killed at the altar while officiated mass, failed in the waters off. The people read this as a signal and built the first church, much smaller, in honour of this Saint. It is a place of Strip, faith, culture and tradition. Not to be missed. Worth a detour if you are passing near Marsala directed at other sites. Manuela and Alessandro Gori

  • You will never be disappointed when you come into a church in Sicily, not this time either. Nice square outside.
