This bar is right in front of the Church .And decorations for it are a real exception for Catholic Sicily , Taormina area especially . This Bar can been seen as some sort of Penis museum ….
This bar ( Turrisi ) was founded in1947 by Cavalier Salvatore Turrisis and have been passed down for generations .For example in mid 1970 bar was passed over to Cavalier`s son – Peppino .
AT the start ( 1950 s ) Calavier Salvatore Turrisis was making and selling almond vine that is his proud achievement . Highly recommended to try when visiting Turrisi Bar ( Vino Alla Mandoria ).They even sell Bar Turrisi version of vine in Penis shaped bottle . Interesting souvenir , right ?
The original name of the bar was the same as the name of his famous almond vine in the beggining : Taverna Del Mandorlo in Fiore
Minchia ( Penis ) represents a lot more then just a penis . It represents fertility , freedom fortune, life and beauty coming from Greek roots.
By the way this bar is right in front of the church . Bar is real exception for Catholic Sicily , Taormina area especially .
This Bar can also been seen as some sort of Penis museum .
Bar Turrisi ( In Castelmola ) become more popular in 1958 when it was reviewed in the magazine .
This is a place were you can taste amazing Mediterranean dishes together with interesting artwork around you , that reflects different sizes , shapes of penis . Unusual but attractive interior . They are everywhere , so be aware before visiting as few people might feel uncomfortable .
