The church of St. Mary of Carmel called "Carmine" (late XIV - early XV century.), is one of the few churches in the city that still shows architectural traces from before the earthquake of 1693, which were unharmed by the violence of the earthquake.

The front side is embellished by a beautiful portal from the late fourteenth century, already declared a National Monument in the early twentieth century, surmounted by a Franciscan rose window with twelve rays, all in the late Gothic style of Chiaramonte. The construction of the Convent took place between the end of the thirteenth century and the first half of the fourteenth century, to accommodate the Carmelite friars who had arrived in Sicily some decades before. Inside you can see a small chapel, also dating back to the fourteenth century, various remains of wall paintings and a beautiful marble group, the Annunciation of the school of Gagini from Palermo.
