The Chiesa di San Paolo in Modena is a large complex in the street with an old church now being restored after the earthquake of 2012. The venue is often used for exhibitions with cultural and scientific presentations.
Taormina’s Chiesa Madonna della Rocca is a pretty little church built into the rocks to walk through the steps where the locals make the Way of the Cross, and where the view from the steps is breathtaking!
