Town museum of Castroreale

Housed in a former oratory dedicated to St Philip Neri, this museum contains paintings as well as wood and marble sculptures, such as the marvellous funeral monument of Geronimo Rosso by Antonello Gagini. Paintings worthy of note include a Saviour of the World, as envisioned by Polidoro da Caravaggio and bearing the clear influence of Raphael, and a lovely Madonna and Child by Antonello de Saliba.
