Church of St. Nicholas
The Church is located in Contrada Fontanelle in the northern part of the Valley of the Temples. The Norman-Gothic style church was built in in the thirteenth century by Cistercian monks. The façade has a pointed portal and wooden doors dating back to 1531. The interior, with a single nave, preserves various works including: a marble sarcophagus which offers the legend of Phaedra and Hippolytus; a marble statue representing the Madonna and Child from the Gagini school (1592th century AD); a wooden crucifix described in the story of Pirandello the Lord of the ship and a painting of XNUMX depicting St. Diego. The monastery attached to the church is now occupied by the Regional Archaeological Museum of Agrigento.
