  • Interesting parlour with lattices, reminded me of "Chronicles of a Capinera" of rod with wonderful adaptation of Zeffirelli. Even today 25 nuns living there. The Church of St Benedict is jewel is accessed by a staircase inspired by 4 pairs of angels and inside ..... panoply of frescoes. The audio tour was meticulous invaluable. For a few euros you presents a dream than an hour. The first Sunday of the month at 3 euros instead of 5.

  • The monastery, the ancient Palace of Duke Julius Tomasi (donated by himself to the Church when his daughter and his wife decided to take her vows) is a wonderful example of art cabinetmaking, a silversmith and painting of the time. A small treasure chest full of treasures including the frontal intessut by the nuns. The monastery unfortunately is one of the few in Sicily where the enclosure so the entrance indoors is prohibited. Only accessible Church covered with artworks, votive offerings and burial place of the Duke and his wife rosalia traina, and the local input. If you want you can buy the famous almond based biscuits ricci made according to a recipe of 600.
