Church of Santa Maria di Monte Oliveto (Church of the Badia Nuova)



The church of Santa Maria di Monte Oliveto with its Baroque façade is adjacent to the archiepiscopal seminary. The interior features a barrel vault ceiling by Pietro Novelli, which depicts the Ascension in the central octagon, surrounded by the Franciscan Saints of Joachim Martorana.
Giuseppe Serpotta’s stuccoes decorate the choir stalls, the narthex (space between the aisles and the facade of the church) and the walls of the nave apse.
