Baglio Trinità

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

A few miles from Castelvetrano, in the province of Trapani, there’s Baglio Trinità, an ancient house in the Sicilian countryside, standing amongst some wondrous specimens of Cycas spp., and Dracaena, secular trees and rare palms; this very green space was designed by the landscape architect Ermanno Casasco.

Behind the Baglio, there’s the small Church of “SS. Trinità di Delia”, named after the nearby river nearby.
Built in the XII century by the Normans, with Arab-Byzantine style, the church is the only one with a central plan and a Greek cross, which has survived intact in Sicily. Outside, it features three very prominent apses, while a dome rises in the centre, supported by four internal columns (two made of “cipollino” marble and red granite with capitals decorated with acanthus leaves.

At the end of the XIX century, the church was restored by the architect Patricolo from Palermo, on behalf of the Saporito family who still owns it today. The Church is one of the three noble places of worship in Italy where members of the family can be actually buried.

Baglio Trinità is currently a popular facility for receptions and events, also offering catering service.

Worth visiting nearby:

The Wildlife-Hunting Park: it’s located in Capriolo, along the slopes of the hills that slope gently towards the shore of Lake Delia. Entirely fenced and covering some 740 acres, it is an uncontaminated environment, rich in Mediterranean scrub, lakes, woods and swamps, where visitors can easily come across wild boars, fallow deers, roe deers, mouflons, buffaloes, hares, pheasants and many migrating birds.
