This church dates back to the 1100's and has a rather magical quality to it. It is small, wonderfully ancient in feel, and tranquil. Very special place.

I loved this place, the floor has glass sections which show the old temples beneath. It was amazing and the energy and atmosphere were very beautiful. There are services here every day and you can tell that its a much loved church with wonderful bells

A very reasonable place to visit, Just 3 euro to go in when we did last summer. There is plenty of history and beautiful sculpture and art to occupy your time while you are there. The scale of the place is quite awe-inspiring.

We decided to go for a stroll around Agrigento to find the cathedral. Somehow we ended up following a group which led to this church. I'm not sure if there is an easier route, but after walking along a very long road with a slight...More
