Abbazia di San Filippo

The Ancient Monastery of San Filippo is the city's most important religious monument. Dating from the late 18C, the church, decorated throughout with gilded stuccos, is home to a moving wooden crucifix by Fra'Umile da Petralia, a liturgical chancel in wood depicting scenes of the life of Saint Philip by Nicola Bagnasco (1818-22), and three panels of a 15C polyptych of a majestic Madonna surrounded by saints.
