Province of Messina

Funari is a tiny village included in the province of Messina with interesting ancient origins. 

The origins of Funari are dating back to the eighteenth century, when Filippo Furnari founded the first complex of buildings and the old town centre. Later in 1813, the village became a municipality with its own magistrates. The most important monuments of the village are the Church of Jesus and Mary; the Church of S.Antonio da Padova, built in 1500; the Church Madonna del Carmine, located on a panoramic hill, was built in 1547 including a wonderful chapel with an Arab style; the Mother Church, erected in the 17th century, includes precious paintings from 1630; the Teatro Comunale, built in the 17th century, is the main theatre of the village.
