Castelvetrano (TP)

Mother Church of Our Lady of Assumption
The building of the church began in 1520 at the wishes of the first count of Castelvetrano. It has a three-nave basilica design and the portal is decorated with medieval style arabesques. The wooden truss roof is enriched with a central beam elaborately decorated with emblems, musical instruments and weapons. The cross-vaulted ceiling is defined by two triumphal arches, the first dates back to the start of the XVIII century and is attributed to Vincenzo Messina, the second was built by Serpotta during the second half of the XVII century. At the back of the church stands the Assumption altarpiece completed by Orazio Ferraro in 1619. Over the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the building was enriched with various works of art and three-dimensional stucco figures. Its current appearance is the result of restorations carried out in 1849 by the architects Cavallari and Viviani who removed the majority of the Baroque decorations.
