Chiesa San Giuseppe information
Closed indefinitely after part of the roof collapsed in late 2015, this jewel-box church was completed in the early 18th century. The central portal is made of local marble while the portals on either side of it consist of Syracuse stone. Adorning the single-nave interior is whimsical rococo stuccowork featuring floral motifs and cherubs.
