This building incorporates both a church and a memorial for the fallen soldiers of Messina. Although we were unable to do so on the day we visited we understand it is possible to visit the memorial although the church itself it not often open. There...More

This is nice busy promenade style area. But must watch out for the traffic. The view of Messina and the harbour is very good from here. But we preferred the view from Santuario della Madonna di Montalto. The place was closed when we visited at...More

This is a scenic area. Our taxi driver told to view the area surrounding the church, I cannot say what it was like inside. It is worth a visit.

This review is NOT about the church, but about the marvelous promenade across the street from the church. From this pretty promenade, we enjoyed a wonderful panoramic view of the sea, the Italian mainland (the “toe” of the “boot”), and the hook shaped peninsula that...More

Tempio Votivo di Cristo Re is an amazing War Memorial with beautiful views of the city and harbor. It is well worth the long hike up to it. Remember to go before 13:00 as they seemed to be closing for lunch.

From a distance, we thought this was another church. But it's not. It's a war memorial. Still, it is worth the visit. The views are fantastic, there is a small cafe across the street, street vendors keep things interesting, and the hike up is more...More

Perhaps already in classical times, the hill south of the swollen river Boccetta was occupied by a fortress, black on green field, that would then be admired in the ancient civic emblem of Messina. It is still possible to recognize the ancient fortification in today's...More
