The Monastero di Santo Spirito in Agrigento was founded by the Chiaramonte family on August 27, 1299 . In the chain of a truss is painted the coat of arms of the family and a relief of the same coat of arms is the keystone of the arch of the dormitory .
The monastery has a rectangular shape with two longer sides and consists of a body of two-and three-storey factories in the north-west side containing the church, in the south-east side are the refectory and dormitory, the chapter house and the chapels. The single nave interior of the church maintains a medieval structure with a coffered ceiling. On the left wall is a marble statue of the Madonna and Child from the school of Gagini.
The nuns run a B&B inside the monastery, which is open all year.
If you are around lunch time in the area, go and try the nun's sweet cous cous - simply delicious!
