The Church of Saint Bartolomeo is located in the homonymous square and was erected in the 17th century inspired by the canons of the Catalan Gothic style. It hosted the seat of the Beccai, the butchers. The simple gabled façade culminates with a bell tower while the portal was remodeled in the 18th century in the Piedmontese Baroque style. Inside the only nave is surrounded by some lateral chapels among which the one dedicated to the Madonna of Trapani stands out, whose construction is due to the legacy of a noblewoman of Sicilian origins. A sumptuous baroque altar is embellished by the seventeenth-century statue of the Virgin venerated in Trapani.
