The Church of the Holy Spirit of Gangi is a Jubilee Sanctuary.
Its origins are very ancient: according to legend it stands in the place where there was a shrine dedicated to the Holy Spirit, in which a boulder was placed in whose hollow the image of the Eternal Father with a dove on his chest was painted; according to historical sources, it stands in the place where there was an aedicule with a painting of Christ Pantocrator, which was incorporated into the apse in the church of Santa Caterina d’Alessandria. In 1576 the small church underwent an expansion and was dedicated to the Holy Spirit.
Inside the church there are frescoes by Crispino Riggio and Tommaso Pollace.
