Elegant churches and architecture grace the Alcamo’s centre. The town’s churches are decorated by works of art made by members of the Gagini family, by Pietro Novelli and by Giacomo Serpotta, one of the Sicilian masters of the Baroque. The urban centre, characterised by suggestive cobbled streets, holds the fourteenth century Castello dei Conti di Modica, the Torre De Ballis and two magnificent examples of Gothic – Catalan art: Chiesa di Maria SS. Annunziata and Chiesa di San Tommaso. The sanctuary of Maria SS. dei Miracoli stands in the North of the town at the end of a downhill cobbled paving path. On the 19 th , 20 th and 21 st of June there are pilgrimages to the sanctuary and various events in honour of the patron saint of Alcamo, the Madonna of Miracles.
