Chiesa SS. Sacramento – ENG


Point of interest n°4

Proceeding towards the town centre along the main Corso, named after Giuseppe La Masa, a general in Garibaldi’s militia and a national hero, at number 180 on the right, stop to contemplate the Church of SS. Sacramento. It was commissioned during the first half of the 18th century by Don Ignazio Lanza, a Member of Parliament and the Captain of Justice, as well as Praetor of Palermo, in the wake of a boom in the city’s population. According to the plan of other churches in Trabia, this one too presents a simple facade, aligning its main entrance, aedicule and rose window; a simplicity that is also reflecting in its interior, the sole exception being the opulent tabernacle. The church was subsequently dedicated to the Holy Cross, patron of the city.
