The Chiesa del Purgatorio is a cute little church, as many places in cefalu very photogenic. Worth a stroll-by if you have the chance.

It's only a small church but the highlight is the beautiful stairs that lead to the entrance. They were adorned with white flowers when we were there that suggests a recent wedding. Looked absolutely beautiful and I would provide a perfect setting for wedding photographs....More

We called in after a wedding. The stairs had been decorated with flowers and there were many flowers in the church. Nothing special but well worth a visit. .

A very detailed facade but relatively plain within except for magnificent wooden organ gallery and the tomb of The Baron, a very interesting and engaged man.

Beautiful church tucked away. It's a place of peace and we lit two remembrance candles. Definitely visit.
