It is a short walk up from the harbor, and on the way if you are planning to visit Castello Brown or Faro di Portofino. The cemetery is also interesting.

The cemetery has numerous raised vaults as well as a few in-ground plots. One of the new graves was graced with the Star of David so we can assume it is not solely Catholic today (if ever it was). This 12th century church was completely...More

It's only a short walk up the gentle hill behind the shops to get to this church and the view across Portofino is well worth it. The church itself suffers from salt water ingress damage but is regularly repaired.

We decided to hike the short distance to enjoy the views we would see of Portofino from a different perspective. Boy are we glad we did. Along the way we saw the beautiful church only from the outside because the doors weren’t open to enter.

You'll have a great view of Portofino if you take the stairs up to St. George's Church. There is a nice sea view as well as a view of Portofino's harbor and main piazza. The church itself is simple and feels old. There is also...More

Vaporetto Information (4 Replies)
Does anyone know what vaporetto we should take after we visit the Church of San Giorgio , to get to the island of Burano? Do the vaporettos have the same schedules daily or is Sunday different?

Response fromsophie8|
The Number 2 is the Vaporetto for S.Giorgio, I would think take that to S Zaccaria then the LN to Burano,

Hello, does anyone have photos of the inside of the churches in Castelmola? Namely the Duomo and the Church of San Giorgio? I've seen several of the outside, but none of the interiors... Thanks so much!

Sorry, can't help you with interior photos. Try contacting Tourist Information and see if they can offer any. info@gatetotaormina.com No longer Forza D'Agrò? Vagabonda

I think I have been mistaken!! We plan to marry in the church over looking Taormina, it may be called the Mother church? I have been there 6 months ago but am having trouble finding any photos or info.
