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.

Near our beautiful hotel the Metropole. Lots of attractions with occasional music by local musicians whilst we sat and enjoyed a drink at the local bar watching all that was going on.

A place that cannot be missed, as it belongs to the very heart of Taormina, part and parcel of its center, looking onto corso Umberto, piazza 9 aprile, and the Belvedere. Cannot be missed.

Centrally placed in the town with easy access to views of Mount Etna, it typifies an Italian square with a church and fountain.
