Since the old duomo was destroyed, this one is very young by European standards. Nonetheless, the inside was beautiful and the clock tower with the astronomical clock and the figurines that move were fascinating.

Personally, all the churches in Taormina is OK, nothing too spectacular compared to those that we seen in Palermo. They probably have lots of history behind them, but unfortunately, I couldn't find much information on them in English or French, hence we were just browsing...More

We stopped by Santa Caterina while strolling through the streets of Taormina. It was very nice and worth a stop if you are walking by, but probably not worth a special trip just to see it. But it is on the way to the Greek...More

This is a good place to shelter from the summer heat. Many will gather on the steps of the fountain outside to watch a wedding party emerge.

Not that much to see, shall not be a main destination. If you go through Corso Umberto, it is a good idea to stop by

An old small church and not too presumptous but beautiful. Located right in the main plaza of this tourist town since the 17th century.

Taormina is filled with wonderful Roman Catholic churches. Each one has its own charm, including this one Santa Catarina. And they are all free to visit. Many have gorgeous statues, oil paintings, and mosaics. I suggest you visit any with an open door.
