    Interesting stoney church with a bell tower just outside the Porta Catania di Taormina. Small interior. One of several churches in Taormina. I would not be disappointed if I have not seen it.  more »

    The very old church dating back to the beginning of 1300 (certainly among the oldest in the city), is located in the homonymous square just outside porta Catania, besides the ancient medieval walls; for many years no longer has the functions of religious temple, but is home to permanent Nativity scene, made in the years ' 50 by Mr. Cacopardo, which stands out for the scale reproduction of many monuments of Taormina and other classic monuments: elements that, even for the landscape, typical Sicilian make pleasant and interesting. The Church was partially destroyed by bombing in World War II, but was rebuilt with the original material, restoring the architectural elements of value. We start from the gothic stone Portal surmounted by a pointed arch with tympanum decorated by small arches and framed with black stone of Etna; the tiny bell tower which rises to the left in front, made up of three pillars that hold up the influence of 17th-century bells. The Church was a typical country Church, most probably frequented by peasants and shepherds. The Interior is modest, with a single nave, with a niche on left, ornamented with marble decorations of Taormina, the wooden statue of the Saint.
