Beautiful building in the gorgeous town and island of Lipari. You get so lost here that you forget it’s an island, it could easily be on the mainland in your mind. The interior is sumptuous and will exercise your camera. Just don’t ask how St...More

It's the cathedrale from Lipari, in the center of the oldest part of the city, much stairs to climb, very nice views; the cattedral is dedicated to San Bartolomeo and merit a visit; other nice sites to visit in the ancient area.

The church is located in the heart of the citadel. It is the oldest and largest church in Lipari. Beautiful views of the harbour. Well worth the climb.
