  • Monumental fountain in Carrara marble in the pyramid structure depicting Orion, founder of the city of Messina, and under the big twelve-sided tub with four statues of the rivers Nile, Tiber, Ebro, Camaro. It was built to celebrate the creation of the first city aqueduct.

  • A pretty fountain in a nice square close to the church with the interesting bell tower. Worth stopping by if you are in Messina. Plenty of shade to take a rest in. There are hustlers selling hats etc around, but they don't seem to bother you too much once you've told them no
  • Best place to start your visit in Piazza del Duome - most immpresive place to be part of the Bell Tower spectacle at 12.oo o clock every day. Do not miss it!
  • Piazza Duomo in messina is the most and try to be there at 12:00 to enjoy the historic animated and sounded patterns
  • Beautiful. Be there at 12 in afternoon for surprises. ☺️👍
  • Beautiful fountain on an amazing square!
