Interesting sermon
Sep 2019
Arrived during a service, sat quietly looking at the interesting features. The priest's sermon was interesting to listen to.

Wonderfully unique construction
Apr 2019 • Couples
I loved looking at the outside of this church. It appeared to have been built over a long period of time using multiple types of material. The base was huge old squared stone which I guessed were reclaim. Much of the building was the square yellow stone that you see quarried everywhere here. Higher up they used uncut stone and the two bell tower tops are different shapes. One of the mosaics inside was a work in process. It looks like they add gold leaf when it is available. Anchoring the square it is wonderful.

Beautiful church

You can look around but beware that if you are wearing shorts or T shirts that do not cover your shoulders that you will not be allowed in.So either dress according or have a sorong and wrap to put around your shoulders.Or just stand outside and poke your head inside.Beware the stones in front of the church are uneven and lots of it are missing shame really.

an unusual colour scheme of blue and white is a feature of this local cathedral (reminds one of Wedgewood!)

Nice view from the top but nothing special if you visit other places in Sicilly.Hard to believe that it has special influence on your health problems....

a very nice church with a big history. as we were there, somebody made music and it was very mystic. the pictures at the wall and the whole church are very fascinating.

One can but admire the beauty of this Church. It is inspirational. I found the sense of quiet and continuity to be uplifting.
