A church to discover in its many details, with its front garden surrounded by a wall that amplifies the charm.
Dedicated to St. Ursula, the church has very ancient origins, but was enlarged in 1450 with the addition of a second nave, dedicated to St. Mary of Jesus.
The building is a rare example for Erice of the coexistence of Gothic and Renaissance styles: the fifteenth-century portal in yellow tuff, the two naves separated by pillars with round and pointed arches and the floor covered with sixteenth-century majolica.
The church became a meeting place for the confraternity of S. Orsola from 1461, linked to the Good Friday procession, in which the Mysteries paraded, now housed in the church of San Giuliano.
