  • The Cathedral of Trapani opens onto the course with great stateliness for portico with three arches in front of the entrance. Note the modern baroque artistic cleared well it binds to.

  • On the main road, closed by side buildings, almost never pass from sight if not for three important and balanced arches supported by four columns and enclosed by a magnificent bronze gate. On the porch you can admire a marble bas-relief depicting the Nativity. The Interior is divided into three spans the ceiling, painted by Vincenzo Manno illustrating the Old Testament is of fine workmanship. It is worth more than the few minutes that normally dedicate them, with a few exceptions, are used to observe the frescoes that force you to inconvenient locations. Reference to the data sheets for the history and architecture, but we cannot fail to point out some works that form the backdrop to this beautiful "mother church" dedicated to Saint Lawrence. In the fourth chapel right span contains the famous "predella Panel from 1550" by a. Van Dyck. Behind the altar is a magnificent canvas by Domenico La Bruna, "Eternal Father"; In the span of left a remarkable canvas "adoration of the shepherds" of 600 (3rd Chapel) along a marble depicting San Lorenzo by gagini school. But the most striking is certainly "the dead Christ", made of stone incarnated, from Tartaglia. The red color looks like blood, and the shades of blue look bruising ... The visit is more than the usual minutes that it takes to visit places of worship, but worth it! ... If you wish, after to rest, you can enjoy desserts and ice cream to pastry in front of excellent quality. Manuela and Alessandro Gori
