Fantastic place to visit and to admire baroc art and paintings. It is advised to have a brochure or a guide to explain the statues of the virtues and paintings. There is so much to see and even better in detail when explained.

This is tucked away behind the Church of St Dominic and isn't the easiest place to find. The outside is uninspiring and easy to miss. I was recommended to visit as I was told the church contains some of the best stucco work in Palermo....More

If you’re on the Serpotta trail you’ll want to drop in. Entry was 3 euro assuming you bought a ticket to one of the other chapels. Here you’ll get allegorical figures dressed in lace, and you’ll also see the artists signature by way of a...More

We only went there because we went to San Sita and they said for an extra 2 euros you could include San Domenico! We're glad we did - it was absolutely lovely.

This is just beautiful but tucked away from the regular tourist stops. It's really gorgeous and paid 6 euros for here and the other oratory round the corner (again use trip advisor maps to find) it's tricky otherwise.

Another very extravagant baroque Oratorio of Giacomo Serpotta. The sculptures floating above you and are prepared to go to heaven or fall on the ground.

Although not as grand as the Oratorio di Santa Cita down the street, this oratorio has interesting features as well. The star of the show is supposed to be the beautiful altarpiece by Van Dyck which shines center stage in the space, but the stucco...More

This church was not on our list. We bought the combination ticket for Santa Cita and this church for additional 2 Euros. The sculptures were less impressive than Santa Cita. The highlight was the painting by Van Dyck.
