Through one of the many narrow streets that come out on the famous Corso Umberto, via a short flight of steps, you can reach the Church of the Carmine. We are in the historic center, near the Porta Catania. The Carmelite church and the adjoining convent of the Carmelite friars, were built in 1662. The unmistakable baroque style church was damaged several times by the Saracens and completely destroyed by bombing in 1943. The Carmine church was later rebuilt and recently restored, but no longer used for worship. Today it is used as an exhibition hall or auditorium. The interior of the church has a single nave, like so many other medieval churches. The façade is characterized by some features similar to the baroque style. Very beautiful and special is the central and octagonal dome.
