Erroneamente viene riportato come Duomo di Taormina la chiesa di S. Caterina, mentre la vera Cattedrale, intitolata a S. Nicolò di Bari, non è nemmeno recensita.

Beautiful old cathedral located in the heart of the city. The building appears to be well maintained. Access to the interior is possible.

The first cathedral was built here in the 13th century on the ruins of the older church dedicated to Saint Nicholas. It was rebuilt several times in the following centuries and its construction made with large stone blocks gives it a look of a fortress...More

This is just a relatively small church. But it is interesting, that just on the opposite side of the street you see (now the police headquarters) the remnants of Jewish quarter - so close!

So many churches have become essentially tourist magnets that the sense of spirituality is lost. This not the case here. The calm, withdrawn atmosphere is in total contrast with the busy piazza and adjoining streets. The art work is interesting and repays study.

This cathedral is quite plain compared to the extensive cathedrals of Palermo and Monreale. The decorations by comparison are sparse but it is a functioning place of worship, still in regular use.

This is a great place to take refuge in from the hustle and busy of the main street just to sit in and admire your surroundings.

Nice old church in Main Street of Taormina. They sometimes have concerts at church. Easy to just check it out while walking the town.

Small and plain but a quiet place to escape the crowds for some moments of reflection. Close to Porta Catania in a square of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops.

Despite the fact that this is a simple, small, plain cathedral it complements its position in the Piazza Duomo well. That is, it does not over-whelm its surroundings but instead fits in with them very well. We enjoyed sitting in the busy small town square...More

We visited the Duomo at various times and saw 2 weddings, both at around 4.30pm which were very interesting to watch with smartly dressed Italians, fancy old cars and in one case a drone to record the proceedings! The cathedral is relatively simple inside, especially...More
