The origins of the feast

probably by the Arabic word Gianguarna, stands the church of the Annunciation, originally dedicated to S. Maria degli Infermi. It preserves the ancient architectural forms unchanged, at least in the pronaos of the XVI century. This opens with a large pointed arch, which serves as a front elevation to the church; on the right side there are two other sharp arches, resting on columns surmounted by pulvinus, decorated with symbolic sculptures. The old bell tower has recently been built with a square shape. Attached to the church stood the Benedictine monastery; built in the fifteenth century by Count Abatellis, at the end of the eighteenth century it was destroyed by a landslide, which fortunately spared the church. The interior of the church, with a nave, is adorned with fine stuccos in 18th-century pure gold. In the wall of the internal façade of the church one can still see an ancient fresco that can barely be deciphered, perhaps representing the Coronation of the Virgin. There is a large canvas representing the Magdalene Penitent attributed to the school of Guido Reni, coming from the homonymous church, a new eighteenth-century painting depicting the Annunciation of the Virgin and artistic wooden statues, such as the Madonna Annunziata and that of S. Giacomo Apostolo, coming from the church that was dedicated to him. The most precious image for the Cammaratesi is that of the Crucifix, called della Pioggia, linked to a prodigious history, which is entrusted to us by tradition and reported by Domenico Di Marco. source: Sicilian countries book of the Sicilian Bibbliographical Institute
