  • 10-minute walk uphill from the fountain of Orion, this small church. Church itself not to mention the great view from the front section of the town of Messina and the harbour. Port-town landscape to make me feel fully.

  • Nice
  • The Sanctuary has some artistic richness which are well worth a visit. Also, the story (Mystic) of his birth is worth being played by the locals. In addition you can enjoy a beautiful view over the city of Messina

  • Is the primitive Church of Montalto or Santa Maria dell'alto and monastery of the Cistercian order on the Hill of Caperrina. The temple was built on the mountain of Caperrina in 1286 four years after the events known as the Sicilian Vespers and the short reign of Peter III of Aragon. [1] tradition has it that it was the flight of a dove to find the place and define the boundaries of the building, witnesses of the event the highest offices of the Senate of Messina (a representation of that event is also the astronomical clock of the Duomo of Messina at the stroke of noon). To embed the cornerstone interjected the Queen Constance II of Sicily, widow of Peter. His son, Frederick III of Sicily, after the intestines contrasts with his brother James II of Aragon gave it rents and privileges with diploma dated 8 January 1297. The façade, facing the sea, was rebuilt in 1930 with two bell towers in Spire flanking the façade. Also from the square in front of this church you can enjoy the view over the Strait of Messina as well as from Christ the King which stands just to the side and is visible, praised by Pope John Paul II during his visit to the city of 1988; to celebrate and remember this event on the belvedere terrace in front of the façade of the Church has been given a life-size statue that depicts the Polish Pope while admiring the wonderful view of the city. Unfortunately for the celebration of the funeral has not been possible to visit the Interior, then I hope to succeed in the next trip to Sicily. Worth a visit if you are around the city, being one of the symbols of the history of the city itself!
