Porta Catania City gate

Porta Catania and Palazzo Duca di Santo Stefano

City gate and Gothic palace

The main street of Taormina, the Corso Umberto, ends in the west of the city at the Porta Catania, the old city gate of Taormina. The beautiful city gate was rebuilt several times and still bears the coat of arms of Aragon over the archway. Right next to Porta Catania is the three-storey Palazzo Duca di Santo Stefano, one of the most beautiful palaces in Taormina. It was built in the 14th Century in Gothic style, but still bears Arab and Norman features. Inside the palace you can find temporary exhibitions, which allow you to visit the palace.
