  • Visiting this site may well call himself an extreme experience, not because of the difficulty of the enterprise, but for the absolute uniqueness of the place. A Norman Church was abandoned over a torrent, shrouded in vegetation, such as Mayan temples. And this is not a chapel, what is striking is the size, the Majesty, the presence of finely crafted, sculpted capitals of arches and Windows, pillars, vaults and bands ... an oculus in place of the Lantern. Exciting, wonderful.

  • The Badiazza is one of the most fascinating evidence of Messina, before the earthquake. It stands on a river, in a trail that leads to the Peloritani. This ancient Church, Santa Maria della Valle, already existed when William II, declared her Royal Chapel. Over the centuries, the Church of the Badiazza was subject to fires, floods, wars, earthquakes, but also for expansion and renovations. Then, over time, underwent continuous changes of styles. Is rich in marble and mosaics rich and beautiful, though sadly abandoned due to TOTAL NEGLECT that has been left by the administrators of Messina that have succeeded one another over time. However, it remains an effective witness of "medieval Sicilian architecture" of rare value. The real Messina, what "mattered", gradually is disappearing, unfortunately.

  • It is on the outskirts of the city of Messina, in the Retiro district scale. It is worth touring a little dirt road to admire this ancient Roman Church. A good example of the sacred architecture of the 11th century - XII.
