The Church of S. John the Baptist

Monterosso Almo's downtown is dominated by a huge square, called U Chianu (the plane) by the locals. Here you can find some of the most interesting monuments.

On a higher terrace, on the right side of the square, stands the Church of S. John the Baptist, the town's patron saint.

The church, accessible by an immense staircase, was made by Vincenzo Sinatra, Rosario Gagliardi 's (1682-1762) disciple, an architect from Siracusa.

The Church of S. John the Baptist

The Baroque style facade is divided by a colonnade, and at the end there is a bell-tower.

The inside is full of light and embellished by stuccos, little side chapels and an opulent wooden pulpit, made by the local artisan Raffaele Di Giacomo.

The church can also be considered as a prototype of the many churches we find, with variations and elaborations, in Eastern Sicily.
