The Church of the Gesù (chiesa del Gesù), Church of Saint Mary of Gesu (chiesa di Santa Maria di Gesù) or Casa Professa is one of the most important Baroque churches in the Italian city of Palermo and in all of Sicily.
Outstanding interior with a large array of carvings, intarsia marble decorative panels and stucco figures as well some original frescoes plus a beautiful sacristy and museum complex.
Amazing example of Sicilian Baroque. Every single corner is covered in sculptures and marbles with the local mischi and tramischi techniques. It is truly stunning and should not be missed!
Stumbled into this place while walking by. Was really impressed, especially by the mural on the ceiling.
Very beautiful church inside
An amazing beautiful fine artworks collected in a single place
Most amazing barocco building in Sicily and in Italy ! You could not miss it. It is near the mercato, so the best time go there is in the morning , you could visit it and the mercato. It is better don’t go there in the late night. If you want enter should pay the tickets , sometimes they do the wedding inside.
Most significant architecture and sculpture of a church I have ever seen.
