This is a Sicilian Baroque at its most extreme, yet barely a soul walking around in there. It was built by the Jesuits in the early 1600s. Alterations made in the 1700s added a smaller nave either side the main, original one. These each include a series of arches that I thought made interesting shots.

A bomb during WW II took down the dome and surrounding walls. After restoration it was re-opened in 2009. The core remained intact.

We were just passing on our way between the Fountain of Shame (Fontana Pretoria) and a nearby street market and were passing the church. It looked just like any other, no big signage, but when we entered, we were amazed.
