This little chapel is situated in one of the most beautiful and panoramic places in Sicily. It can be reached either by car or else by a demanding stairway that requires some stamina. The stairway to this chapel will give you a more interesting way to sample the view of Taormina way down below. Finaly when you arrive at this... More

A lovely church in the center of town. We saw a wedding which was just exquisite, the bride was gorgeous and obviously quite happy. It was a festive event which brightened the afternoon.

I visited St Catherine of Alexandria Church in Juyl of this year as part of a random exploration of Taormina. At first we popped our heads in just to be nosey as the doors were still open in the evening, but saw so much beauty that we went in to admire up close. This is by far the most beautiful... More

We came across this Beautiful Church while strolling about in Taormina. I had passed it several times before realising it was a church, because there were a group of elderly men sitting on the steps outside. Inside the church is pretty small, but very tranquil & well worth a visit inside. I sat for a couple of moments to take... More

When you wander the Corso Umberto, you must take a break and enter this church. Take a sit and take a moment of reflection. And forget for a few minutes of all the bad things. It makes you well.
