From Messina Gate to Castelmola (Km 2)
It's prevalently a panoramic-landscape itinerary
From Messina Gate, coming on to via Costantino
Patricio and skirting the City Walls, we meet the Capuchins' Fountain, where via Dietro
Capuchins begins. Immediately, on the right, we could observe the arcades of the Roman
aqueduct, englobed by the overhanging houses' structures.
Going on, we meet the Capuchins' Church and Convent. In proximity to the schools there is
the slope Branco, old mule stairway, afterwards the road which climbs up onto the north
side of the Tauro Mount begins.
After one kilometer we come across via Leonardo da Vinci and immediately after, on the
left, across the siculian Necropolis of Cocolonazzo in Mola, which dates back to
the Iron age; going on, we arrive in Castelmola (531 metres above sea level), ancient
fortitude set to protection of Taormina, from where the view extends for the most part of
the eastern Sicily's coast.
