  • This beautiful church is, according to some, the place where once stood the home of a Roman matron named Lucina, while according to others the name comes from an ancient sacred Grove (lucus) the worship of Juno Lucina, protector of parts. The place of worship was transformed over the centuries with the overlapping of construction built by Pope Paschal II in the 12th century, of which the beautiful porch and the belfry, whereas in the 17th century there was the radical restructuring of the three aisles with a single nave with a coffered ceiling and the creation of various noble chapels. Other performers worked there Bernini (Chapel Fonseca), Rafiq (altar and Blessed Sacrament Chapel), Sardis (baptistery). On the main altar stands the famous Crucifixion by Guido Reni, whilst in the Chapel to the right is preserved a crucifix of the sixteenth century considered miraculous. The Tomb of Nicholas Poussin, built by the writer and diplomat Francois Rene de Chateaubriand in 1830 with bust of Paul Lemoyne and Louis Desprez and two couplets that singular in Italian sounds more or less like this: "Hold the tears; He lives in this tomb the Poussin, who didn't seem to die ever. Yet he now is silent; But if you want to hear him speak, in his paintings he is alive and his paintings speak. " The Church owes its preciousness to the relics of Saint Lawrence kept under the altar in the first chapel on the right. Eighteenth-century urn contains according to tradition the gridiron of his martyrdom, by being flat on who found the courage to tell his tormentors: "over here are baked, rivoltatemi on the other side."

  • Church with a Romanesque Bell Tower and a classicistic façade, with an eclectic expressive interiors: neoclassicism with baroque chapel, main altar and ceiling. In the beautiful baroque chapel (the fourth from the entrance on the right side) there is a bust of Bernini. Also, the columns on the right hand side is the gravestone by Nicolas Poussin (one of my favourite artists). Below bust artist resides the most mysterious terrain of his paintings "Arkadskie shepherds".

  • Among the many works to see inside there is Guido Reni's crucifix above the high altar. Beautiful also the coffered wooden roof. Here are the chains of San Lorenzo and the gridiron where he was martyred. In this church, in 1726, was christened the painter Alessandro Vasta, born in Rome who worked often in Sicily where many of his works are visible in various churches of Acireale.
