  • 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.

  • Gorgeous monastery where are set some of the pages of the famous novel by Tomasi di Lampedusa, "the Leopard"

  • They show only the Church and a corridor through which they lead you into the courtyard where they try to propose you the cookies made by Sisters (but if there are only two in very advanced age, how do they do all these cookies?)
