Chiesa del Gesu, Palermo

4.7
Gaze at the endless display of Baroque architecture and adornments inside Chiesa del Gesu. 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 Gesu and other Palermo attractions into our Palermo trip itinerary website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Walking through the streets we happened by chance in front of this church which from the outside is not particularly interesting. What a reward to be back. The decorations the gilding in short everything is beautiful and changing from what we are used to seeing!everything is breathtaking

  • The first church built by the Jesuits at the end of the 15th century, badly damaged during the Second World War, it has regained its original splendour in stucco and swarms of angels, an example in the field of Sicilian baroque, a fusion between architecture, sculpture and painting, magnificent baroque church, superb visit to make.

  • Found randomly looking at photos on Palermo, we decided to visit it because it is close to other attractions in the area. Simply WOW! The interior of the church really leaves you speechless, decorated from top to bottom, the whole leaves you breathless. Definitely to be integrated into your itinerary, really a wonder!
