In the heart of Palermo there is a small British architectural treasure, a Late-Victorian church built by British merchants in Sicily in the 19th century: the Anglican Church of Holy Cross. It is the centre of Anglicanism in the community of Palermo and is in an area which developed between 1880 and 1910, on the corner of via Roma (parallel to the city’s main shopping street) and via Mariano Stabile (leading down to the harbour), yet within walking distance of the historical centre.
