Church of San Vincenzo Ferreri (Former convent of San Domenico)
Print Friendly
Chiesa di San Domenico 4 - Fine Art Produzioni

If you arrive in Piazza Dante Alighieri on days with perfect visibility, overlooking the beautiful lookout to the northeast is the church of San Francesco Ferreri, former convent of San Domenico. It will appear to be at one with the Sicilian hinterland landscape. Its hills and its specific agriculture, down below at this spectacular terrain, Etna will complete the scene with its gentle majesty gentle, which is also soft under the winter snow.
The facade has already declared its 15th century origin from the first installation, with its inscription dating back to 1419. But what is striking is the rarity of its white ashlar coverage in diamond tips. Even here the earthquake of 1693 interrupted a style that must have been of Catalan origin. With interior reconstruction a nave (a reference to the original rose window) and a stonewall were conserved. Civilian use (an elementary school) replaced the adjoining convent, after four centuries of monastic life.
