The Church of Saint Mary of The Chain


The Church of Saint Mary of The Chain is a Catalan Gothic style structure, built in the 16th century by the architect Matteo Carnilivari and took it's interesting name because at one time, attached to one of the walls was the end of a chain that closed the port of Cala. The church is probably the most important example of a fusion between local architecture, late Renaissance and Catalan Gothic elements. Inside there are two paintings of the Nativity; one is an Adoration of the Shepherds and is painted by an unknown artist, whilst the other is an Adoration of the Three Wise Men by Vincenzo and Antonello Gagini, to whom are also attributed the church's bas reliefs and the column capitals of the grand entrance.
