Built in the second half of 1600 the Church of St. Joseph immediately striking for its beautiful baroque facade that overlooks the square. The unmistakable Baroque style is most evident in the double staircase with stone balustrade of Syracuse, which accompanies the main entrance which leads to the churchyard. This monumental staircase double ramp is the only one you can see in Taormina.

Gray and pink are used for the remaining parts. On the sides of the portal there are two large columns with Ionic capitals and that rest on high bases similar to those found in the entrance of the cathedral.
