A vast, beautiful Baroque church, immaculately kept, right on the Quattro Canti in the heart of Palermo. Extraordinarily imposing. A short visit will leave an indelible memory. Recommended.

Tucked away behind one of the corners of the Quattro Canti, we were lucky as it was open in preparation for a wedding later in the day. One of thecmost exuberant baroque interiors in Palermo, so well worth visiting.
