A light and airy small church with an interesting wooden ceiling. Worth stopping in for a look. One of the more interesting buildings in Taormina.

Visited the church today with friends. It is small but charming. Well worth a visit when you are in Taormina.

A very charming small church in the centre of town. The usual ornate interior that all churches in Scicily seems to have.

We first visited this charming little church as we happened to pass by , noticed the announcement for a concert and returned. Two lady pianists were giving a recital, delightful, memorable, we felt lucky to have been there, and it was free !

Preferred this church to the cathedral. Was light and airy and with the doors permanently open, looked so inviting. Very simple architecture but inside is well worth a visit.

Like all the old churches around Italy, the Chiesa di Santa Caterina has got the great wooden ceiling structure and is filled with detailed architecture. Worth to take in (in silence) when around!

This church is open at all times and we enjoyed watching wedding parties emerging from the church with the cries of Viva le sposi! There were flowers inside and on the steps leading to the doors of the church. Locals sat and chatted and others...More

Pleasant enough little church with some interesting statuary and paintings. Quite plain by Italian standards.

Popped in here before going into the Tourist Information Office. Nothing spectacular about it - there are nicer churches to visit.
