as Duomos go, this one is quite small. Very quaint. Saw a number of brides leaving the church when in Taormina. Very picturesque.

This is a nice church, duomo as they call it, but in my opinion it doesn't have anything resemblance with the other domes (for example Milan which is impressive).
Anyway in Taormina, the streets are the nicest thing and this duomo arises like an atraction, so of course you will take a few pictures from the outside and inside also if it's opened.
We actually found a wedding there, so we just entered one way and exited the other.

Interesting and takes only a few minutes. Would have been more impressed if we had not just done a lengthy tour of the churches in Rome....

This is a very pretty church located at the main square. It is a pleasant break from the tourist shops.
