Bellini Square. Erected in the XII century. Seat of the order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem. Built in the 1787th century, the church was entrusted to the Benedictines of Monreale, who kept it until 1882. In XNUMX it was restored by Giuseppe Patricolo. The exterior has a compact sandstone wall facing with carvings of blind arches and perforated ferrules. Above the characteristic three red domes that emphasize the whole structure. The interior has three naves closed by apses, of which only the largest is visible from the outside. The walls are not decorated, but are purposely left in a rustic state, with the bricks in evidence, while the capitals in which the colonnades that separate the three naves end are probably dating back to a period prior to the construction of the church and taken from other places sacred.
