Probably dating back to before the founding of the city in 1651, it was restored and expanded by Prince Nicolò Placido Branciforti. In 1785, threatened by the danger of collapse, it was rebuilt by the Capuchin friars of the Third Order of San Francesco. The monastery fell into disrepair in the mid-19th century. It is neoclassical style with a single nave, a simple facade and bell tower. Inside some polychromatic wooden statues stand out of Our Lady of Carmel, San Giacomo, San Vito (protector from the bites from dogs with rabies) and San Biagio (protector from diseases of the throat). Also noteworthy is an oil painting on canvas depicting St. Anna and a plague stone, the legendary item attributed to protection from disease by the divine hand, a metal grate protects it.
