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

We decided to go to mass and drove to this church. It's built on one of the many Greek temples that were built on the hilltops surrounding the valley. We were lucky to be able to also attend a christening.

A small gem, set in the winding streets of Agrigento, definitely worth finding and visiting, as is the Duomo, both with attractive wood ceilings.

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.
