  • Ugly and utterly kitch (plastic chairs, awkward chandeliers) interior despite fabulous ceramic floor and a poorly kept Caravaggio masterpiece! It should be taken away from this church if they have no idea how to maintain and display it
  • 7 May 2017 to 14 May 2017 A beautiful church at the South end of the main square on Ortigia.
  • Nice and cosy church. Important paintings.
  • Must!
  • Belle architecture
