  • We visited this church as part of the event "The Ways of Treasures", taking advantage of the detailed explanations of a boy who led us. Founded immediately after the death of St. Francis, the small church was expanded in 1600 and enriched with stucco, decorations, paintings and frescoes. It features a sumptuous tuff facade with Spanish-flavored engravings and a large pair of caryatids. The interior, with a single aisle with vault, boasts rich stucco decorations, as well as a fine decoration by Domenico Provenzani, one of the greatest painters of the 18th century Sicilian, to which is due to the spectacular fresco with the Triumph of the Immaculate, in addition to four minor frescoes that cover the entire time inspired by the Old Testament. Spectacular the monumental sacristy, wonderful in walnut cabinets, finely carved and adorned with dozens of wooden statues representing the life of Christ, whose doors inside are artistically painted, in an elaborate rococo sink in black marble of Billiemi and in the beautiful frescoes still remaining. Behind the main altar, also finely worked in gold-decorated wood, protected by a sturdy grate, is the statue of the Immaculate, clad in silver foil, with the starry in precious stones, the work of Maltese workers, of the overall weight of 280 kilos.
