Taormina is filled with wonderful Roman Catholic churches. Each one has its own charm, including this one Santa Catarina. And they are all free to visit. Many have gorgeous statues, oil paintings, and mosaics. I suggest you visit any with an open door.

Interesting and takes only a few minutes. Would have been more impressed if we had not just done a lengthy tour of the churches in Rome....

This is a very pretty church located at the main square. It is a pleasant break from the tourist shops.
