CHIESA DI SANTA MARIA DELLE GRAZIE
La church of Madre di Petrosino, built in 1745, was initially of smaller dimensions compared to now but from 1845 it was enlarged until it obtained its present layout, in order to better satisfy the needs of an increasingly large population. Entrusted to the Francescani, as shown by the simulacrum of Santo di Paola, from 1881 it carried out parochial functions delegated by the Mother church of Marsala, and later became Prima Parrocchia - First Parish outside Marsala.
The façade with a Neo-Gothic doorway, is today enriched with a mosaic depicting la Madonna con il Bambino – Madonna with child. The bell tower has been rebuilt in a modern style. The interior with a wooden roof and lateral aisles has a modern main altar in marble.
