  • We go to church, where he was just celebrated a wedding and then is still open, the keeper kindly gives us a very short visit, since it needs to close. And we take the opportunity. The Church's name seems to derive from a long chain fissta the wall that closed the port of Palermo. Built in Gothic-Catalan style and Renaissance, its interior has three naves and three apses. I am attracted by the second span a chapel of the Madonna della Catena. This Chapel fresco depicts the venerated Virgin of graces. The Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus in her arms with the appearance of an adult, because according to the Byzantine tradition, Jesus was always wise, he could never have been baby

  • Bella! It is worth the extra steps in order to admire. From the outside it is still impressive. Beautiful entrance portal.

  • In this church we hit walking on the Kal'sa, almost reaching the sea. Beautiful church, performed in the Gothic style. "Catena" in Italian means "shackles". The names of the two versions. First, the church stands next to the chain which blocked the entrance to the port of Palermo. The second version of the more unusual-the Church was built in honor of the miracle that took place in the year 1392-several prisoners prayed to the Theotokos for release from detention, and were actually released, shackled literally melted in the Sun.
