La chiesa di Santa Caterina d'Alessandria d'Egitto è un edificio di culto situato nel centro storico di Palermo. Fa parte dell'aggregato monumentale altrimenti noto localmente, come “Chiesa di Santa Caterina delle Donne”, unitamente al trecentesco monastero domenicano L'impianto della chiesa è a unica navata con tre cappelle per lato, si sviluppa longitudinalmente ed è attraversato dal transetto su cui si innesta la cupola. Ciò che colpisce di più è la ricca decorazione dell'interno, tipico dell'età della Controriforma. La decorazione degli spazi interni, così come per molte altre chiese palermitane, è costituita da un sontuoso apparato in marmi mischi e tramischi, stucchi ed affreschi che si fondono, in un'unica armonica lettura, con le strutture architettoniche portanti. L'altare maggiore è realizzato in pietre dure, agate grigie e verdi, con ornamenti in rame dorato su progetto di Andrea Palma. Il paliotto , anch'esso in pietre dure con sepolcro della madre badessa suor Maria del Carretto del 1598: colei che promosse i lavori di rinnovamento. Ai lati sono presenti due splendidi angeli lignei dorati con vesti e ali laminate in argento. Il monastero destinato in principio alle semplici donne meretrici, solo verso il XVI secolo per magnificenza e ricchezza diviene uno dei monasteri nobiliari e di clausura, più importanti del territorio palermitano. Il fasto e la grandezza della chiesa esterna dovevano significare la potenza del Papato, nel caso specifico di tutto il complesso di Santa Caterina, altri due elementi in più: la nobiltà, il censo, il rango, il blasone delle monache e il fatto che la chiesa ubicata al centro della città, doveva essere all'altezza del luogo Il ruolo religioso e caritatevole del gruppo monacale di Santa Caterina è ben noto ai palermitani, soprattutto ai più anziani, che continuano a mantenere vivo il ricordo dei sapori dei dolci tipici siciliani, che le suore usavano produrre nei giorni di festa. Il complesso monumentale, in uso alle monache di clausura, è visitabile solo recentemente -------Tutte le foto contenute in queste gallerie sono copyright Sergio Bartolomeo e non possono essere utilizzate in alcuna forma senza il consenso dell'autore.

Hello Kitty. Yes, as images, live view is truly spectacular: rich in decorations, everywhere, some of merit, such as those that decorate the paraste.
Yet, so much opulence, contrary to what often happens, is not particularly intrusive or suffocating. Very interesting also the monastery and the view that you can enjoy from the rooftops when you visit: a glance on the historical center of Palermo.
Thanks for the ride and for the compliments.
Hello

Thanks Stefano, I had happened to visit this church, a first time, together with the visit of the monastery annexed, had been a partial visit, pressed by the crowds and late hours, near the closure. Fascinated by this interior, I am back, "armed" with tripod, intent on performing some shots as well as the environment deserves.
Thank you for your words.

Thanks John, you're absolutely right, this interior is magnificent, I tried to reproduce it to the fullest. Ideal would have been wait a moment without visitors, but I had to settle for a moment when they were few.
Hello
Sergio
