Sicily 13: Taormina (ii) [Sky Watch Friday]

By Shattman
From sea level, one has a steep climb up a winding street until one reaches the heart of Taormina; viz. the Piazza del Duomo. The most striking structure in the plaza is a wonderful early17th century Baroque fountain, which features a Minotaur [half human, half horse]. Depicted as a female holding a scepter and an orb, symbols of power, it has become the emblem of Taormina.

   Around the plaza are shops and stands for artists, crafts people and vendors of all sorts.

Along the main street, the Corso Umberto I, are a myriad of small shops, cafes, and galleries. Views down side streets offer a different perspective, but the love of flowers was everywhere evident.
