  • Survived the earthquake at the beginning of the 20th, is an exquisite example of Arab-Norman art. How to illuminate it exalts it more, if possible.

  • Already on the outside is a masterpiece, but I also had the good fortune to find it open: inside is architecturally simple, but beautiful.

  • In the decoration of the main façade and the side elevations are obvious stylistic influences. The presence around the apse and dome, smooth columns in support of the bows on the edge of the building, in place of the traditional brick pilasters, differentiates it from contemporary churches of Messina. The decking is less than that of the modern city, now higher for the accumulation of debris produced by earthquakes. It has a Basilica with three naves with cross vaults on the sides and in the transept. A relatively recent careful renovation has restored the building to its former glory. Fully deserves a visit.

  • Church of the Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani is a very old and a historic piece of architecture. The church displays influences from Arab and Byzantine architecture and also contains Roman elements. It is worth paying a visit to this church. Magnificent!!! .
  • Walking around the city of Messina without map, we stumbled upon this different-looking building so we went down to see what it had to offer us. It IS a church!!! It is rich in history (just google it, thanks :-) ) but to see it in person is magnificent! For someone who is keen on architecture, this is a good study!
  • nice
  • Historic
  • This s wonderful and ancient church. Definitely a place to visit.
