CAPPELLA S. CRESCENZA

Aedicule of Santa Crescenzia

The small, suggestive building in a quadrangular layout with a raised arch cupola, opened by pointed arches, is an original example of typical architecture from Trapani of the end of the XV century – beginning XVI century, with Arabic, Norman and Gothic influences. The solution of the corner supports of the cupola with  fanned stairwell is particular.
An ancient, popular belief is that Saint Crescenzia, wet-nurse of Saint Vito, had the power to drive away fear “u scantu”, and that this could be done by throwing a pebble into the chapel.
