  • To get into Santa Maria del Carmine, you want to come to the most famous Ballaro market in Palermo. After passing through the noise of this truly colourful Bazaar East of enter into the Church and get into the silence and beauty. Inside two unique chapel with twisted gilded columns, stucco which contain scenes from the life of Christ and the Virgin Mary. The work of famous sculptors of Palermo Giacomo and Giuseppe Giacomo Serpotta. Oh, and of course, when approaching the Church will need to pay attention to her big beautiful Dome, covered with majolica and supported by atlantes.

  • We visited the church accompanied by two great guides, two local high school girls who have described the Church with great precision and professionalism. You deserve a 10 for the commitment and skill. The Church is beautiful and interesting

  • Right in the Centre of the popular market of Ballarò, amid the shoals of fish and fruit and vegetable vendors, the dome covered with glazed tiles with colors that evoke the Arab style, one of the coolest realizations of Sicilian Baroque, the Chiesa del Carmine, built by the Carmelites in the late 12th century, destroyed and rebuilt entirely in ' 600 and designed by the architect Mariano Smiriglio. Inside the Church aisles to be observed, in particular, the stoup and chapels with statues of Gagini, the stucco decoration of the chapel of Saint Andrew Corsini brothers Serpotta, with a famous painting by Pietro Novelli

  • Cost 1 euro to enter. I enjoyed doing panoramic photos of all the art.
  • A small Norman church far from the big baroque churches of the nearby. But is a real gem.
  • half Byzantine, half reinessance. both halves: amazing!
  • Norman church built by Arab masons and decorated by Byzantine craftsmen. A must see.
  • This was a really interesting church which juxtaposed two styles of architecture in its interior. The mosaics were very intricate and the frescoes very beautiful.
