You have to pay to go in this museum, I think it was 8 euros. half the building was closed off so very disappointing. The only thing worth seeing, in my opinion, is this piece. I would not have bothered if I had known it was all going to be unavailable. They have a nerve not reducing the price.
This enormous piece of art you find in Palazzo Abatellis. Only for this 15th century work it is worth to visit this museum. But there are many other great works to admire. For instance the world famous Virgin Annunciate of Antonello da Messina. So go and visit this great museum.

This is a massive fresco, quite beautiful although the subject matter like most created in that time period is a bit macabre. Don't worry about your initial photos, near the end of your visit there is a balcony that you pass by that looks down and across to this beautiful fresco....no other tourist heads to block your view.
You should definitely visit the Regional Museum, where this fresco has been relocated. There are some other lovely frescoes and altarpieces. But this fresco, located in Sala II, is amazing. The figure of death on horseback is said to have been one inspiration for Picasso's Guernica in its angularity and sense of death and destruction. We sat before, and discussed,... 更多
