Another beautiful Italian catholic church. Not a destination unto itself, but a nice place to visit on rainy day or long stay touring.

It is very pretty, considering Reggio Calabria is a small town relative to other bigger cities where the cathedral spires rise above the buildings. The marble images are sculpted by local artists of the area.

It is not very big or ornate, but still interesting if you are religious. It is pretty much at the very end of the tourist part of Via Garibaldi.
