What travelers say:

chiesa s maria della catena This church is quite big, a little Greek in style. It is free to visit, but the exterior looks quite old. There are really many churches in Palermo. This one is a little inconspicuous. It is close to the Philis Gate.

    A bit out of the centre

    If you follow Vittorio Emmanuele avenue all the eay to the harbour you pass this church. Interesting exterior but not worth a visit.

    Interesting but not a must do site

    A very pleasant church with an interesting loggia. The custodians were pleasant. The interior is plain and simple. We had a reduced entry ticket with the "il circuito del sacro". Pleasant, but if your...

    Not worth the money
