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.
