The church and the convent

Begun to build in 1572 at the behest of Duke Ercole Branciforti and completed a few years later, it has been restored several times in the 1600s. Before the Napoleonic code it was a burial place and numerous tombs still remain. In addition to a canvas depicting the Madonna between S. Francesco and S. Lucio, placed 1677 on the high altar, it is possible to admire the precious wooden tabernacle sculpted by an anonymous artist. Later the convent was enriched with a library and many paintings by the famous Capuchin painter Fra Fedele da San Biagio, actually Matteo Sebastiano Palermo Tirrito, born in SB Platani on 18.01.1717 and died in Palermo on 9.08.1801.
