  • Splendid jewel of the Baroque church of San Mateo from Palermo, was built in 1633 by the order of Makulkarn. It contributed some of the best artists, sculptors, architects, local craftsmen, such as to make the church a real treasure trove of art. The building's façade, in Baroque style, is made with gray marble Billiemi. The large 16th century style interior is equally rich. The pillars supporting arches covered with polychrome marbles, to each of which are of the side chapels, always covered with polychrome marbles, containing a vast collection of works of art in Sicily from the 17th and 18th centuries. Surveying the vaults by Vito D'Anna, stuccoes of the Serpotta, canvases by Pietro Novelli. The underlying crypt, still in good condition, which also hosted the remains of famous men including Giacomo Serpotta, has marble niches bearing rests head where were placed the bodies.

  • One of the most beautiful baroque churches of Palermo on the main street near the quattro canti, to visit.

  • Despite being little known, the St. Matthew Church is one of the finest examples of baroque art in Palermo and makes use of numerous and valuable works of several artists. It was built in 1647, and thanks to the donations of noble families has been enriched by many works. The Church is located in the oldest street of Palermo, at 259, via Vittorio Emanuele, the historical centre of the city. However, it is a little hidden, just before the "Quattro Canti" place, but it is located in the middle of the Palace missing a bit of breathing. For those who understand photography, we say that it is not easy to photograph its façade because you have a limited space to be able to create the framework.

  • 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!
