  • This piazza IX aprile there will end up surprising; There is only one angle that does not reserve a surprise and the clock tower is the right complement ... furniture.

  • Located in the Piazza IX Aprile. Ancient gate, the di Mezzo, in the wall of Taormina. It is the 12th century although it was rebuilt in the 17TH. It has a clock that gives it its name.

  • The Middle door is the entrance on corso Umberto leads inside the old district. Using an existing stand of an ancient defensive building, dating from the fourth century b.c., the tower was built in the 12th century, but during the invasion of the French troops of Louis XIV in 1676 was burned to the ground. In 1679, by the will of the people of Taormina, the tower was rebuilt, and on that occasion it was placed, on the side of piazza IX aprile, even the big clock that characterizes it further. Since then we use identify it as the clock tower and no longer Torre di Mezzo.

  • In pictures of Taormina you can see this tower crowned with a clock, since it is one of the most iconic buildings of the city. It is a construction of more than 800 years ago, built on ancient remains from other pre-existing works. It is known as "the third gate", or "gate of the Middle", as it is equidistant from the gates of entrance to the city from the South and the North, Messina and Catania.

  • The "Torre Dell ' orologio e Porta di mezzo" is a gateway to the Western suburb of Taormina. The Tower has pinnacles and a clock. A mosaic of the Madonna in the arch especially liked. The tower is located in the Centre of the city, opposite to the Cathedral and today is part of the pedestrian zone in main street "Corso Umberto" Taormina. We were In April and September on the spot. In the season abound on the road from tourists. I felt this but not as annoying. From the Cathedral Square, it also has a wonderful view to the Mediterranean Sea, you can see the tower with the beautiful mosaic then ever.
