  • It is a huge fountain in the proximity of the Duomo. Was quite splendid, and surrounded by the plummeting in the Middle water to honor the Orion and its under pretty elaborate carvings. Fountain near the waist, while hitting the cool breeze while relaxing and watching the Duomo and warmed my heart.

  • Did you arrive at the Bell Tower too early? Take a walk around this gorgeous fountain while you are awaiting the tower show. Very nice!  more »
  • The source of Orion is very nice, located in the main church square. It is busy because of its accessibility and its beauty. It must be stopped to see it.

  • A very busy place when different cruise lines arrive at the same time. It is full of hawkers selling souvenir items and peddlers of tours. That what makes this place unique. Then all of a sudden, the people disappear :-) to explore other parts of Messina. A popular landmark of the Messina... Ente Ecclesiastico Basilica Cattedrale Di Messina AKA Il Duomo is not to be missed. If you want some peace, the church is your refuge. And the Astronomical Clock (Orologio Astronomico) if you are lucky to witness the dancing statues, it's fun! Behind the church is a monument dedicated to the Immaculate Virgin Mary in 1758. For the prayerful tourists, it's fitting to say a little prayer before the beautiful image of Mama Mary.
  • 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
  • Great venue for an historic visit ,only spoilt by street traders who will try to sell you local tat and will not take no for an answer.
  • My wife made me promise to bring her back
  • Nice historic place but very touristic. Very steep so you need a good condition otherwise no go.....
