The Mother Church of Pachino is dedicated to SS. Crucified and rises on the central square of the city. It was built in 1790 by the Marquis Vincenzo Starrabba for the Christian community of Pachino and it is one of the oldest buildings in town. It consists of a facade with two overlapping orders and two small bell towers with a bronze door created in 1968 by the sculptor Biasi. Inside there is a single nave, with a chapel to the right of the apse. Here you can admire the statue of Our Lady of the Assumption, patron saint of the city, and various paintings. In this church are guarded the remains of Gaetano and Vincent Starrabba. This is a worship’s place, fascinating those who have the pleasure to visit the city.
