Church and Convent del Carmine

In the suggestive elongated square is the church, the bell tower and the Carmelite monastery,  the first monastic order to settle in Marsala at the end of the XII century. The church was built in the XVI century and was renovated in the XVII century, assuming on the inside a Baroque style. The octagonal bell tower, with a characteristic winding staircase, built to the plans by  Giovanni Biagio Amico in the XVIII century, replaces the pre-existing tower. The monastery which today is home to the Ente Mostra di Pittura Contemporanea and holds works by great contemporary masters, conserves architectural traces from different centuries from the XIV century to the XIX century; The fine internal cloister from the XVIII century which underwent reorganisations renovations and reshaping in the XIX century is of interest.
