Gallodoro

Province of Messina

Gallodoro is a tiny village which is part of the charming province of Messina and it is rich in history and traditions.

The first settlement of Gallodoro was named Bocena and was included in the village of Taormina. Later in 1879, the village became part of Letojanni which was a very important fishing village. In 1952, the village became an independent municipality.

This charming little town has two wonderful holy places: the Church of S.Maria Assunta, built in the 14th century and the Church of S. Sebastiano which includes the Sacred Art Museum and is a majestic building dating back to the 15th century.
