Not amazing like so many other Italian Cathedrals such as Milano Duomo, or Firenze Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, but still beautiful. It is the most interesting church in Lipari, and as there are not that many stunning architectural attractions in Lipari (the best ones being the trips to the volcanoes) I believe you should visit it. It will be bundled in your tour visiting the Castle and enjoying the beautiful vies on the see.

The church is accessed by an imposing staircase. The church interior is a real art treasure - a multitude of altars according to the degree of holiness accorded to the dedicated saint decorate every side of the church. HP The host to whom the church is dedicated occupies the position of honour at the right hand of the altar maggiore. There is also a beautiful secluded cloister that had been sealed for for centuries and only recently had been rediscovered. It used to be a graveyard, it is now kept in good conditions especially the beautiful original columns supporting the cloister. You have to pay one euro to see this but it is well worth it.

Beautiful building in the gorgeous town and island of Lipari. You get so lost here that you forget it’s an island, it could easily be on the mainland in your mind. The interior is sumptuous and will exercise your camera. Just don’t ask how St Bartholomew was martyred, especially before lunch.

Beautiful interior. Great photo opportunity from the bottom of the steps. If you prefer to use a ramp go round to the other access to the museum , which is in the same area at the top of the hill. If you take the bus up to Pianocente there are some great pcitures of the church from there or if on a day trip on the boats as they leave harbour. No charge for entrance
