  • Gorgeous Church Architecture, which can be seen from most parts of Messina, as it stands on a hill and overlooks the town. Inside we, unfortunately, don't hit the doors were locked. But enjoyed the luxurious views of the city and the Strait. On the lookout Terrace also has a statue of John Paul II, in honour of his visit to Messina in the year 1988.

  • It's a pretty simple compared to other shrines of Italy. The staff/volunteers are extremely friendly and was really nice to enjoy the view from up there too. Has a life-size statue of John Paul II. He was loudly:P Has begging on the outside too, unfortunately. Messina was full of beggars. Sad.
