Santa Maria dello Spasimo

Interesting
The church and convent make up a complex built in 1506 within the very walls of the Kalsa at the request of Giacomo Basilico. But the Turkish threat transformed it into a fortress and the convent was never used for religious purposes! After a chequered history, work has restored the church and the neighbouring rest home has been transformed into a temporary exhibition and concert hall (the convent now houses the European school of jazz).
