Cathedral of San Nicola

Cathedral Square and Cathedral of Taormina

In the centre of the medieval Taormina is the Cathedral Square. An eye-catcher and the main attraction is the Cathedral of San Nicola. It was built in splendid medieval-baroque style in the 13th Century by the Swabians. The unplastered outer walls including battlements are from the medieval period, while the beautiful main entrance is clearly of Baroque origin and dates from the rebuilding in the 17th Century. The portal also harmonises well with the baroque fountain, which is located in the centre of the square and topped with a little centaur.

The interior of the cathedral is decorated simply with only a few works and paintings. Among the works are the "Madonna and Child with Saints" by Antonello da Saliba and the "Visitation of Mary" by Antonio Giuffrè.
