LA CHIESA DELLE ANIME SANTE DEL PURGATORIO

Translated into English the name is Church of the holy souls in Purgatory.
September 16th – 4th day of our Sicily holiday with the family.
This is a really interesting church located in the historic centre of Trapani. It was built in the late 17th century and houses a collection of life-sized statues or tableaus which are beautifully carved and which are depicting the passion and death of Christ. If we had been there at Easter time we would have seen a procession/parade with these statues going around the streets of Trapani like they do here in Malta in several towns/villages. We have to make a point to visit during that period sometime in the future.
Thank you so much for all views, comments and fav's - always appreciated. We had a demonstration asking for the resignation of our prime minister yesterday afternoon attended by thousands of people which I attended (I have attended most of the demonstrations till now).
its the privilege of my night to view your magic but realistic shots! The story is also adds to my pleasure! Its a very catholic story. fav

Beautiful, so much intricate carving.

And I have added the website to my post today to show you the apartment we stayed in actually inside the Schönbrunn Palace, so you can see I was not joking! Amazing thing to be able to do. We were blown away.
