Marsala churches

There are several churches inside Marsala, the majority of which are located in the most ancient part of the city.
Some of these churches still have liturgical purposes, like Chiesa Madre (Mother church), chiesa Addolorata (Our Lady of sorrows church) or santuario della Madonna della cava (sanctuary of Our Lady of the quarry), others are periodically opened, like S.Giuseppe church, S.Antonino church or S.Giovanni church. Among them there are also deconsecrated churches that have different purposes, like chiesa Purgatorio (church of Purgatory) used as auditorium, or S.Pietro church used as picture gallery for local artists.
