The cloisters of a 14th-century convent enclose a collection of archaeological finds and art, many of it salvaged by a local aristocrat, Count Pepoli. With his fine eye, the count found the best examples of coral carving, a popular Trapani tradition that local craftspeople pursued up until the early 20th century, when nearby coral beds were depleted. Many of the works, in which coral is often intermingled with silver filigree, are by local artisans Andrea and Alberto Tipa. Among their creations is a spectacularly elaborate presepe (nativity scene). Before leaving the premises, step into the convent’s Cappella della Madonna to see a graceful, sculpted scene of the Virgin and Child, attributed to the 14th-century Tuscan master Nino Pisano.
