San Gerlando Cathedral

Agrigento Centre

San Gerlando Cathedral displays a charming combination of architectural and artistic styles.

San Gerlando Cathedral, located in the old town centre of Agrigento, at the top of a grand staircase, is considered one of the most important sights of the city. Built in 1100, this holy place has had lots of renovations over the years which conferred to the church a charming combination of architectural and artistic styles providing an expressive scenic effect. For this reason you can admire elements dating back to the Norman, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. The interior has a charming gothic portico where it is possible to discover the Tomba di Brandimarte (created in 1680) where the remains of the Saint are conserved in a silver reliquary.
