THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE

In Marina quarter, not far from  St.Antonio’s Church, you can visit the monumental Church of the Holy Sepulchre. According to some scholars, this building has to be ascribed to the Knights  Templar who might have used it as the chapel of their monastery.

On the basis of a more qualified hypothesis,its foundation should be dated back to the 16th century, at the time when the Brotherhood of the Holy Crucifix, of Prayer  and Death was set.

You can also go there for shopping and enjoying your free time during the day.

CHURCH OF ST AGOSTINO

In Marina quarter you also find St. Augustine’s Church.

The older fifteenth-century Gothic church consacrated to this Saint was built outside the district’s walls, just in the place where they believed the body of the Saint had been buried.

During the restauration of the city walls, the old church was damaged and in 1576 it was demolished.
