RUDERI DI SALAPARUTA

 
  • RUINS OF SALAPARUTA
RUINS OF SALAPARUTA
What remains of the old inhabited centre of Salaparuta, destroyed by the earthquake of 1968, is a mass of ruins from which emerge remains of houses, the base of the square tower of the Paruta castle, the lower part of the perimeter walls of the Mother church, with the bases of the pilasters of the naves and the structures of the lateral altars: it was in a basilica plan type with a nave and two side aisles, divided by pilasters, a transept and high cupola and it had a very slim fašade in the southern part, typical of the best examples of Sicilian Baroque. On the external wall of the Sancetta house a niche commemorates the site of a miraculous event; the crying of a chalk bolster depicting the Sacro Cuore di Ges¨ ľ Sacred heart of Jesus, in January 1957. The convento dei Cappuccini - Capuchin monastery (XVIII century) was recently restructured and consolidated by the insertion of new metallic structures. Of the connected church, only the fašade remains with the decorated doorway
