Messina, Sicily | One of the few churches to have survived the terrible earthquake of 1908 and the aerial bombardment of the city in 1943 is the Chiesa Annunziata dei Catalani. Originally built by the Normans, it was remodelled during the 13th century. The external decoration of the apse and transepts, which shows a strong Arab influence, is quite remarkable.
