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.

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.

This is not especially ornate, but the sense of calm inside is striking by comparison to the hustle and bustle in the street outside. The altar depicting the Last Supper is particularly noticeable. Outside is a good place to sit for a while too, and...More

Not unlike any other beach town with lots of beach stuf for sale. Not overpriced and an interesting walk down to the water and the historical site.

We stopped in shortly after taking a guided tour of the city. I believe it is open most of the day. No charge to enter and not crowded at all. Like most of the Italian cathedrals, it is ornate and beautiful. Don't miss it if...More

It's in the heart of Taormina, free and has a detailed, impressive relief carving of the Last Supper. It's open seemingly all day.
