The church is in the Main street and from the surrounding bars you can often Watch People gathering for or After weddings. The church itself is a Calm relaxing place.

Be sure to stop in here for a quick history lesson from the Greeks to Modern day. There are ruins and various artwork which spans the history of Taormina which you can tour without moving and simply turning your head.
