Soccorso Chapel

The Church of Santa Maria del Soccorso in 1350 was part of an Augustinian monastery. Additions were made in 1791, 1854, and, following an earthquake in 1883, the structure was rebuilt. A wood crucifix found in the sea after a storm in the 16th Century is displayed above a side altar.

I come here frequently to sit on the front bench and either meditate or write. Occasionally I’ll take photos to add to the large number of images I’ve already made of this intriguing Moorish-style edifice.
