Church of Saint Domenic
The monumental church of Saint Domenic, built in 1470 at the wishes of Giovan Vincenzo Tagliavia, lord of the city, is a fundamental piece of work for the history of Sicilian architecture. Known as the “Sistine of Sicily” it constitutes in fact one of the most significant examples of Sicilian Mannerism that foresaw the imminent Baroque. Most worthy of noting are the large main altar chapel and the choir chapel , decorated by Antonino Ferraro of Giuliana. There are numerous works of art kept in the church, among which a white marble sarcophagus on which a knight lies with his head resting on his right arm that depicts Ferdinando Tagliavia and Aragona, son of the project owner. Restoration work carried out with the most advanced technology available was recently completed.
