Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli and Convent of the Friars Minor

Via San Francesco , 98060, Sant'Angelo di Brolo Sicilia

History

The construction of the Church, also called the Church of San Francesco, took place between 1506 and 1587 and is annexed to the sixteenth-century Convent of the Observant Minors. In the entrance frieze you can see the symbolism of the Knights of Malta, inside there is a beautiful Crucifix by Friar Innocenzo da Petralia (1644-26). In the side niche we find another noteworthy sculpture, the Madonna and Child, a typical example of local art with its gold details. On the main altar stands a seventeenth-century canvas representing Santa Maria degli Angeli, attributed to Antonio Catalano.
