Holy Trinity Church of Delia in Castelvetrano
Clemensfranz - CC2.5
The Church of the Holy Trinity, also known as Cuba of Delia, is a Norman church built according to the canons of Norman-Byzantine architecture.
It was built in the first half of the 12th century a few kilometers from the city of Castelvetrano.
The church has three remarkably pronounced apses which develop on the eastern side, ideally connecting to the three entrance doors. Of these, the lateral ones were strictly reserved for men while the central one was intended for women who, in full respect of the Greek rite, attended the celebration from a reserved area of the church. At the center of the structure rises a raised sixth dome resting on a square drum. The arms of the cross are barrel vaulted while the corner crossings are closed by crossbars. The Greek cross structure is also repeated in the crypt whose access, via an external staircase, is on the east side.
