As a part of the Aprile square the Chiesa di San Guiseppe has everything a building on Sicily could have in your imagination. The colour of the stones, the rooftop finishes, everything. Great building, both from the inside aswell as the outside.

This church is also located at the main street in taormina. You van combine shopping, sight seeing and going out with a visit to this beautiful church. But please consider, it is a holy place. Act and Dress accordingly.

Lovely little church in the center of the town. It did not seem to be open every time we passed it. Busy with restaurants all around it.
