Organ and old Jesuit church

When you pay attention to this place, two unusual facts are worthy of attention.

The first is, of course, the organ, which is over 300 years old and has recently undergone a thorough renovation so that you can listen to it.



The organ is located in an old Jesuit church on Corso Vittorio Emanuele. I must say that the church building has an amazing history and its origins date back to 1614 when the Italian architect and Jesuit Natale Masuccio began designing it.

Near the church is the Jesuit College, also built about 400 years ago, has unusual architecture and contains historical artefacts.

This place is a must-visit in Salemi. Here you can listen to the organ and study the ancient architecture.\

The second interesting object will be the Jesuit Order, which created this church.

It is they who are credited with the statement “The end justifies the means” and are accused of espionage, bribery and conspiracy and a great influence on power. Because of their active work, the Jesuits were expelled from Portugal, Spain, France and Naples.

But it should be noted that their actions were always as effective as possible. These were very smart people. They say that Descartes, Voltaire, Charles de Gaulle, Alfred Hitchcock, Saint-Exupery, Fidel Castro, James Joyce and others were brought up in their colleges, which were located throughout Europe. In any case, this place is perfect to start your little historical investigation.

Now many of the historic buildings are in need of repair and they are accepting a €1 house in Salemi as part of the program. Find out more at the link
