Divided into nave and aisles, it houses prized works such as a painting depicting St. George and the Dragon, a 1500s marble sculpture of the Last Supper, a 1500s polyptych representing the Madonna and Child, attributed to Antonello de Saliba, and a 1500s statue of the Madonna della Consolazione.

The 1600s Chiesa di Ges e Maria also contains interesting pieces, such as a canvas depicting The Triumph of the Cross and Jesus and Mary.
