And it is also impossible to explain, as a young man, the artist, who was in Syracuse, received the order on this picture, and how he wrote it almost "travel" and in a short time, and drove myself further in search of adventure. And the picture is very dramatic and impressive, and hangs in the altar of the Church. The most appropriate place for it.

  • I went to see the famous painting of Caravaggio but photos were not allowed to take.
  • A beautiful church at the south end of the main square on Ortigia.
  • 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
  • Nice and cosy church. Important paintings.
  • Must!
