  • Beautiful church hidden between buildings a bit ... to visit absolutely! Beautiful also the bell tower which is not seen from the road, you can see him going in via venezia (via Rome). Special day to visit it on good Friday afternoon leaves from the Church one of the most famous processions, at which time this church has finally the importance it deserves every day if it weren't a little abandoned. To see.

  • My grandfather used to remember "and who ssemu to the Church of San Matteo?!" when more people coughing at the same time. Driven by insatiable curiosity to see this place, I went into this beautiful church located along the Cassaro. Yes, beautiful, you got it, and my low rating is a protest vote: I think it is inconceivable to keep in a State of such impairment a church so beautiful. First you pay 1 euro to enter, for heaven's sake, I can also understand it, especially if the money is invested in the recovery of space ... but it looks like just another lace citizen. Inside, glaring cracks Pierce naves and a transept, crossing the wonderful frescoes and stuccoes of the Serpotta by Vito D'Anna. The canvases are in pretty bad shape; including the one depicting a valuable "marriage of the Virgin" by Pietro Novelli. In the aisles and chapels are stacked statues of Saints and wooden benches (shame!!). Interesting the giant reliquary and the chapel of the crucifix (in good condition). The Church also houses a beautiful crypt, used (it seems) for storage. An infinite punishment.

  • Whilst small and weathered, the interior was beautifully worn - the ceilings were clad with old paintings and the walls with sculpture. Tucked away on the side of a street, this church was definitely worth a visit.
  • Creepiest place ever!
  • To visit as the whole palermo
