We visited the Tempio Votivo di Cristo Re in Messina, whilst on a one day stopover. We were doing a self-guided walking tour armed with a fairly basic tourist map and had climbed up to the memorial via the ‘Vialle Bocetta’. Initially we thought that...More

A peaceful, simple and evocative memorial to those Italian soldiers who lost their lives in the allied attack on Messina. Go to reflect on the impact of war not just to look at the view of the town and harbour.

A lot of history in the building but have to read about it online. They do not provide any English literature.

This is a scenic area. Our taxi driver told to view the area surrounding the church, I cannot say what it was like inside. It is worth a visit.

This review is NOT about the church, but about the marvelous promenade across the street from the church. From this pretty promenade, we enjoyed a wonderful panoramic view of the sea, the Italian mainland (the “toe” of the “boot”), and the hook shaped peninsula that...More
