Church of San Pietro


Descrizione

The Church of Saints Pietro and Paolo, probably the oldest christian church in Taormina, is encountered along the provincial road via Pirandello. It is located in the middle of what was once the Arab cemetery, of which there are now few remains after most of it was destroyed in 1825-30, during the construction of the road named Luigi Pirandello. Due to its location in the middle of fields outside the city, where vines were mainly cultivated during the time of the Tauromenitani Greeks, we can assume that the temple was dedicated to the god of wine Bacchus or Dionysos. The facade of the church dates back to the 18th century and has a simple portal with jambs and architraves in Taormina stone. ... Continua a leggere
