A tree inside of Santa Maria Dello Spasimo

Santa Maria Dello Spasimo is a church built in 1506.

 

"The church was never completed because of the rising Turkish threat in 1535, when resources meant for the church were diverted to fortifications of the city against any possible incursions. Even in its unfinished states, Lo Spasimo shows the late Gothic style architecture that permeated building practices in Palermo at the time as well as the Spanish influence in the city."

 

The church now hosts open air musical, theatrical and cultural events because of its lack of a roof.
