Novara di Sicilia (Sicily)

Novara di Sicilia is a town in the Metropolitan City of Messina, in the Italian region of Sicily. The village, nestled in the mountains overlooking ancient Tyndaris and Abacaenum and with notable views of the Aeolian Islands, is the archetype of a typical medieval town. There are five churches. The 16th century Cathedral is in the Piazza Duomo. The churches and palace ruins were constructed by the craftsmen of the town. Other churches include Santa Maria di Noara, S. Nicolò, S. Antonio, S. George and Annunziata. There are also palaces from the 16th through 18th centuries. The anthropological museum, which features tools of local farmers and artisans as well as displaying the early culture of the local people, is also of note. The intricate cobbled streets form a mosaic between the ancient small houses that stand shoulder to shoulder along the mountainside.
