This paper is aimed at detecting the presence of crypts and/or buried structures within the church of S. Maria del Rosario, located in Motta S. Anastasia village (Catania, Sicily, Italy), by using the non-destructive Ground Penetrating Radar (G.P.R.) investigations. Furthermore, infrared thermo-graphic analyses have also been carried out to individuate unhomogeneousities in the building structure and to collect information regarding the component elements, their shape, their physical characteristics and their state of decay. The obtained results point to textural dierences in the walls and some water inltrations. Finally, in-situ drillings on the church's walls were performed to obtain information about the building material and their state of degradation. Thanks to these analyses an accurate repair work can be carried out on the building.
