Church of the Madonna del Rosario



The church of the Madonna del Rosario (Our Lady of the Rosary) was built in 1621, with stucco work created by the sculptor Antonio Messina, a native of Castronovo, in 1770. In 1950 the church was split into two parts, one of which was demolished to make room for the present-day Corso Umberto I. The building has a single nave with straight apse. The roof is partly covered in wood and partly cross-shaped, while the interior decorations are all in white stucco. Inside are a number of works, including the “vara” of St. George, a polychrome wooden group by Marco and Silvio Lo Cascio di Chiusa Sclafani, which is carried in procession on 3 May for the feast of the Holy Crucifix.
