Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani Church Guided Tour

At the time of your choice, we'll meet on Via I Settembre in Messina. From here, we'll walk to the nearby Church of the Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani

From the moment we arrive, the façade of this temple is sure to catch your attention. Built between 1150 and 1200, this building combines elements of Romanesque and Arab architecture. After admiring all the details of its exterior, we'll head inside.

Did you know that the Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani was built upon the ruins of the ancient temple of Neptune? It's also one of the few structures that survived a terrible earthquake in the early 20th century. 

As we make our way through the church, we'll also be sure to tell you about the important link between this famous monument and Spain. To do so, we'll journey back to the times of Peter III of Aragon, when this monarch also reigned in Sicily. It was at this time that the building was promoted to the category of royal chapel. We'll tell you all about this and many other curiosities on the tour!

After a 40-minute visit, we'll leave the temple and give you some sweets for the road, concluding the tour.
