Province of Messina

Venetico is a charming little village located in the province of Messina. 

The village of Venetico is located between the Peloritani mountains and the Tyrrhenian coast surrounded by the river valleys of the Senia and Cocuzzaro rivers. These rivers also create the borders with the nearby villages of Valdina and Spadafora. Proceeding towards the mountain, it is possible to discover huge extensions of clay, sandstone and marl soils. The most important monuments of the village are the Fontana Monumentale, erected in the 16th century, has a majestic mermaid’s statue; the Mother Church, dedicated to San Nicolò di Bari, built in the 16th century, includes precious works of art such as the main altar made in 1792, the wooden crucifix dating back to the 18th century and some beautiful frescos; the Church of Sant’Anna, built in the 17th century, is rich in impressive paintings dating back to the 17th and 18th century.
