This church is a must in visiting Palermo. Very interesting marble work and crypt is worth a visit. It is down a side street but easy to find

This church will take your breath away, with its entire internal building adorned with marble stucco, in between stained-glass windows and frescos/paintings. We were fortunate to be the only ones in the church for most of our visit. It was very special.

The church's exterior does not do justice to its interior. We walked in and wham, the interior takes your breath away. The white marble interior and the designs are over the top and would take hours or days to appreciate this church fully. Just sit...More

I had seen photos of the inside of this chapel but nothing prepared me for the WOW! factor as I stepped through the door. What an amazing display of intricate baroque architecture.

Jesuit church dating back to 1550. Contains a striking ceiling fresco over the high alter. There is also a number of other internal chapels all of which are very ornate

We visited this church and loved it! It was amazing to see the workmanship and all the different places in the church. We have visited hundreds of churches throughout Europe and this is in our top 5. Go there!

Superlatives do not do justice to the interior of this church. The outside and facade do not prepare you for the colouur, detail intricacies..... Almost destroyed during WWII bombing, it has been faithfully restored. A trained eye may have quibbles about how the restoration was...More

A few minutes walk from Quattro Canti, the historical center of Palermo, yet we missed it on our first visit, since it is a few blocks from the main Street. Nice looking church on the outside, but be prepared to be awed when you step...More
