This as small as wonderful church in Arab-Norman style, is considered one of the most beautiful Norman monuments of Sicily.
It was built in the first half of the twelfth century, has a square plan and three apses, a hemispherical dome, a central door and a side door.
Looking at the façade there are some typically Arab-Norman elements, such as the arches, in the center of which are found, recessed, the entrance door and three windows.
The embattled decorations were added in the thirteenth century.
Inside there is an altar; in the center four columns and, in the corners of the three apses, some columns.
The floor has an islamic style color picture.
Under the churchyard, the last century, have been brought to light the interesting mosaics belonging to a Roman villa.
