We walked up to Madonna di Montalto and took the stairs at the end. You need to have a good condition to do it. The church itself is nice to see but not special. The Outlook from the platform is a mazing. You can make excellent pictures!

Amazing view
Oct 2019 • Couples
We climb up a few stairs to get to this church. Inside it's pretty simple but the hundred years old icon of the Vergin worth the visit. Outside it's a terrace with an amazing view above the beautiful city of Messina.

Best viewing point in Messina
Nov 2017 • Couples
This place is overlooked by tourist but it is the best viewing point in Messina. The view from here is even better than Tempio Votivo di Cristo Re which is only 10 minutes walk from here.
We saw this church up in the hill and decided to find out way. There are steps to be climbed but it all worth it as the view is so beautiful.
Best photo opportunity of Messina and the harbour. And of Tempio Votivo di Cristo Re.
During our visit the church was closed - it closes between 12.30 - 15.00hrs.

... a beautiful view of the city from here..
Sep 2017 • Couples
.. to tell you the truth, the church itself is like many in messina.. the foundations are still there but the rest has been destroyed and rebuilt several times after the various earthquakes that have befallen the city.. but the view of the city, the harbor, the coast to the North to Capo Peloro and the Calabrian coast across the Stretto, that you have from the square in front of the church is incomparable and should not be missed..

A long hike up but the views are worth every step!
May 2017
We saw this church on the hill when we entered the city so we asked how to get there. It's quite a hike with LOTS of steps. You can take a taxi up if needed and it would be worth it! The view is spectacular! The church is beautiful - as are most in Italy. There was a place to refill your water bottle which I thought was very thoughtful considering the hike up. I would recommend this to anyone traveling in Messina.

Well worth the climb
Jun 2017 • Couples
We were in Messina on the Celebrity Constellation and decided to visit this church which we had seen from the ship. There are many steps up to this elegant building which took its toll on a very hot day. However the church itself is well worth a visit and the views of the Straights of Messina are stunning from the small plaza in front of the building.

Beautiful Church, Must See
May 2017 • Couples
Our B&B owner, Fabio (Garibaldi B&B) recommended we see this church as it overlooks all of Messina, especially the harbor. Even though it was a trek to get there, it was worth every step. And, we were there at 12:00 and we could hear the bells and the movement of the Piazza Duomo's Bell Tower Astronomical Clock Movement which happens everyday at this time. The view from up here is absolutely beautiful. You could see the tip of Calabria.

Beautiful view
Jul 2016 • Family
What'd ya know? A Roman Catholic Church in Italy. Yeah, I know. Cheeky. But this isn't just a church. It's one with a commanding view of the city and harbour. It has a small, local congregation; we visited during their mass. It is a nice walk up the steps to the church. But in the end, it's another Roman Catholic Church in Italy.
