SANTA MARIA DEI GRECI

The Church of Santa Maria dei Greci represents the perfect synthesis of the artistic-spiritual history of Agrigento, in a seductive combination of Christianity, Greece and Byzantine era.

The Church stands on the remains of the ancient Temple of Athena or Zeus Atabirios, comparable to the Temple of Concordia in size and grandeur. Through the glass floor – which offers a sublime bridge between the souls of the city – traces of the temple are visible, as well as the crypt and the nineteenth-century colander, where the members of the Confraternity of Santa Maria dei Greci were desiccated, sitting on the armchairscarved into the rock before the burial.

Simple and severe, it has a fourteenth-century wooden ceiling with painted trusses, frescoed panels of the Madonna del latte and a marble sarcophagus from 1570 containing the bones of two noblemen from Palermo: Bartolomeo Caputo and Isabella Termini. A key monument of the downtown, the Church of Santa Maria dei Greci is a compendium of rare, linear and paradigmatic beauty.
