Chiesa del Gesù, Palermo

4.7
Gaze at the endless display of Baroque architecture and adornments inside Chiesa del Gesù. Hidden inside a misleadingly plain exterior, detailed carved marble inlays cover the walls like a mosaic among statues and columns. Descend into the comparatively plain crypt, and after passing through the porticoed courtyard, view a large collection of portraits in the attached museum housed in the Biblioteca Comunale. Put Chiesa del Gesù and other Palermo attractions into our Palermo trip itinerary website , and watch your holiday take shape.

    One of the most beautiful churches of Palermo. Unusual looking black marble, which is pretty much on the floor and walls.

    Beautiful church! Don't miss if you stay in Palermo. Admission is charged, but well worth the money!

    This church which does not look much from the outside is a gem. Do not miss her. This Jesuit church is the largest baroque building of Palermo. It may even look too 'load', but it is really worth a visit. Only downside, the ceiling paintings which were done following the bombing of the second world war. They denote in this set.
