    Unique Church! Located on a hill away from the town. From Taormina you can get on a steep trail with stairs, and is serviced by a bus going in the Kastelmolu. Plain on the outside, but very cozy inside. Special charm-rock ceiling. Plus-shikarnejshie species on top of the coast, Taormina and Giardini-Naxos. The Church can be reached and even higher-to the saracinskoj fortress.

  • A very modest little church dug out from the actual rock on which Taormina is also built. It stems back to the 17th century. Next to the church there is a hermitage and a monastery of the order of the Basilian. The views are stupendous on one side Taormina with the amphitheatre while the other side majestic Etna, Castelmola and Naxos
  • Duck your head in for a unique small church. Right at the top of the path up from Taormina, this small church looks unremarkable from the outside. Step inside for a moment and you see how the builders wonderfully incorporated the stone into the roof. Worth the 5 minutes to see.
  • Amazing views from up top ! Would recommend going when it isn't 32 degrees, worth the sweaty hike though :)
  • Amazing place with nice view!
