Neighborhood: Tribunali/Castellamare

A wonderful example of Baroque art, this church was founded in 1633 and was attached to a large Carmelite convent of the 12th Century, which today no longer exists. It has two entrances, and the one which faces Piazza Cavalieri di Malta contains an elegant marble Baroque door with a pediment embellished with scrolls. To the side stands the 18th-century stone bell tower. The inside of the church is rectangular with a wide, semicircular chapel. The linear architectural structure is enriched with stucco decorations and mixed marble from the end of the 1600s in the form of wreaths, spirals, scrolls, draperies, cherubs and angels.
