Chiesa del Purgatorio
Chiesa del Purgatorio is one of many beautiful, historic churches around Trapani, but what makes this church unique is what it holds inside. The 17th century church is the home of the Misteri, 20 life-sized woodcarvings describing the Passion of the Christ. Every year on Good Friday, these effigies are hoisted by various guilds and paraded around the city. Some are original, dating to the 18th century, while others are reproductions replacing ones that got broken or damaged over the years.
