  • 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.

  • 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.
