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.

This cathedral is not as outstanding as others in Sicily are. When we visited, there was religious service time.

You can’t help but look into this Cathedral on your way up the Main Street. Very quaint and if a service on at the same time even better.

Not a great masterpiece but some lovely carvings and paintings. A silver and jewelled piece dedicated to the Madonna is awesome.

Spent quite a while looking at a very impressive silver 'repousse' of the Madonna and her child, on the right hand side of the Duomo. Worthwhile going into the Duomo to look at it.

Don't expect anything like the same grandness as the cathedrals of Monreale or Cefelu. This cathedral is tiny by comparison, and relatively plain. You'd need to be a particular fan of churches to appreciate it.

Understated yet beautiful cathedral on the Main Street in Taormina. The artwork and bas relief is amazing.

The church is a relaxing and Calm place. The ornaments are beautiful and it has some nice Art inside. Please Consider it is Mainly a holy place and Not a Tourist attraction. So it is always nice to respect this and act according.

Thank Verena S
