Chiesa della Santissima Trinita' o dei Battenti Reviews
The Church of St. Mary of Mercy or of the doors was built starting from 1579 and is attributed to the Neretino Giovanni Maria Tarantino. The building was the seat of the Brotherhood of Mercy or The doors, whose brethren followed the rigid rule that obliged him to undergo bloody flagellations and to wear the Cilician. The pointed façade has a single entrance richly decorated and carved in Lecce stone, surmounted by a bezel with the depiction of Our Lady of Mercy, with the mantle supported by two angels. On the sides of the portal there are two niches, originally host of frescoes. The interior, with a single room terminating, beyond the triumphal arch, in the polygonal apse with a vaulted vault, is characterised by the main altar machine. Leaning against the triumphal arch, left and right respectively, are placed the altars of the Crucifixion, with a canvas donated by the confreres in 1633, and the Holy Trinity. On the ceiling is placed a large painting depicting the Virgin of the Assumption in heaven, made by Gallipolino Agesilao Flora in 1897.
Painting and precious, small gem of Galatinese history.
