Near the main street in Taormina is the Church of Santa Caterina di Alessandria, a 17th-century church dedicated to St. Catherine of Alexandria.

The church was restored in the 1970s, and it was during that restoration work that some of the layers underneath the modern church were found. Archeologists found a crypt as well as ruins dating back to Greek and Roman times - including the remains of a Roman theater. The church was officially reopened in 1977 after about 40 years of being closed.

The spartan exterior of the church gives way to a white Baroque interior. Statues of St. Catherine abound, including one that dates from the 15th century and was originally in an older church dedicated to the saint in another part of the city.

Some walking tours of central Taormina will include the Santa Caterina Church, but not all will include a visit inside.
