Description

Basilica La Magione (Holy Trinity of the Chancellor) 

Piazza Magione. Founded in 1191, it was the last of the churches built during the Norman Altavilla dynasty: Tancredi buried his son Ruggero there and he himself wanted to be buried in the Basilica. In 1197 it became the "House of the Teutonic Knights" and thus was the mansion (hence the name of the church) of the general preceptor of the order. Over the centuries it underwent various tampering, such as the construction, in the XNUMXth century, of a Baroque portal. The church has Arab-Norman characteristics with recessed ogival windows and the motif of the intertwined arches inside the apse typical of the period. The interior preserves a marble triptych from the XNUMXth century.

Crypt.
