  • Every noon starts. To see one of the things not to be missed. Scenarios that follow one another and tell of myths and legends of Messina

  • Nothing quite so impressive if not for the mechanisms of the Bell Tower, I prefer the Town Hall, large and spacious

  • The bells at noon and the movement of the statues are an attraction that stops the whole square. The view of Messina from the top of the campanile simply leaves you breathless, worth the climb all those stairs.

  • Beautiful cathedral inside and outside. The square around it is also really beautiful
  • An amazing building with some amazingly detailed art pieces! It's the place surrounded with a lot of bars and restaurants. It's nearby city center, with multiple stores near it! Don't miss to see the clock tower at 12:00(Afternoon). It's an amazing sight to see all the sculptures inside it move accordingly. Have fun!✌
  • Simply breathtaking
  • Bellisimo
  • Very nice
