Messina's Duomo

The cathedral, almost entirely destroyed by an earthquake in 1908, was rebuilt in its original Norman style. The projecting facade is softened by ribbed windows and a small central rose window. Of the three porches, only the central porch was rebuilt with the original 15C elements. The treasury boasts a fine collection of holy objects and ornaments.
