Church of the Annunciation of the Catalans

Hotels near Church of the Annunciation of the Catalans, Reggio Calabria, Italy .

The Church of the Annunciation of the Catalans (also called (Annunziata dei Catalani) is located in Messina, Sicily, on Via Garibaldi near Via Cesare Battisti. It has a Romanesque/Byzantine design with Arab influences and dates from the 12th or 13th century.

In 1908 the earthquake stripped away much of the later alterations and additions to the church, but left its original architectural style intact. Because the quake leveled the earth on which the church sits, the structure seems to be sinking today.

The interior of the church is used today as a university chapel and is decorated in red, yellow, and white stone with tall Corinthian columns. Many tourists come to see the apse, an example of the Norman style. A nave and two aisles lead to the apse, under a cupola. The back of the church contains a famous statue of Don Juan of Austria, the on of Emperor Charles V , carved by sculptor Andrea Calamech in 1572.

The church is Open with free admission Monday through Saturday from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and Sunday from 9-11:30 a.m.
