The Church of San Pietro is located in the historic center of Agrigento.
It was built in the second half of the eighteenth century on the site of a pre-existing religious building.
The facade it is divided into two orders crowned by a bell-shaped loggia. The first order, marked by two pilasters ending with Doric capitals, has a wooden portal flanked by four columns with Doric capitals and a truncated pediment. At the center of the pediment is the papal coat of arms with the tiara and the keys.
The interior, with a single nave, has frescoes by Giuseppe Cristadoro, depicting scenes from the Holy Family.
Today the church is part of the Temenos Space, a multifunctional-cultural space.
