Le Chiese del tour:
In the upper part of Termini Imerese, between the panorama you can admire from the Belvedere and the green of the villa Nicolò Palmeri, there is the Church of Santa Caterina d'Alessandriam a real unicuum in the territory. Inside there is a pictorial cycle depicting episodes from the life of St Catherine with some inscriptions in ancient Sicilian, these are the most extensive on a non-paper surface in Sicily.
A few steps from Piazza Duomo there is the Chiesa del Monte, built by the "Compagnia dei Bianchi", a company made of noblemen helping those most in need. Although modest in size, the church is full of tombstones and monuments of various famous people from Termini, so much so that it is referred to as the city's 'Little Pantheon'.
Walking around the Belvedere in Termini Imerese, visitors' eyes cannot fail to stop and admire the dome of the Church of Maria SS Annunziata, one of the city's symbols. Its blue-coloured majolica tiles let the viewer dive into in the clear blue sea in the background. The church is located in the historical district known as 'Rocchicedde' and it is characterised by the presence of a garden in front of it and the oldest marble nativity scene in Sicily
The Church of San Giacomo was Termini Imerese's first cathedral and the seat of the ancient Byzantine bishopric; it is now one of the oldest surviving monuments. In 1943 a bomb broke through the roof, leaving the church without it, this is the reason why it is called the 'Spasimo' of Termini Imerese.
The Mother Church of San Nicola di Bari is the cathedral of the city of Termini Imerese. It stands on the ruins of an earlier church, which was also the area where the former house of an illustrious figure from Termini Imerese, Stenio, was built. There are many works of art inside, such as the Ruzzolone Crucifix, depicting Christ on the cross on one side and the Risen Christ on the other, the Black Crucifix and many others.
