Galati Mamertino is a medieval beautiful village in the province of Messina.
The village of Galati Mamertino was founded in the Middle Age by the aristocratic norman family Camuglia. Later in 1320 the feudal town was acquired by Blasco Lancia who built the current old town centre.
The most important monuments of the village are the Church of S.Caterina; the Church of S. Luca; the Mother Church which was built in the 15th century with a Renascence style; the Church of Rosario, built in 1530; the Santurario di Trofillo, built in the 20th century.
The village also includes the Ethno-atropological museum which displays the cast of a dwarf elephant who used to live in Sicily over 200.000 years ago and the Prince Palace which is a wonderful building erected in the 16th century.
Close to the village it is possible to discover the charming Catafurco waterfalls and the Capriolo area, a natural area where are preserved a group of roe deers coming from the Boschi di Carrega park.
