Il Duomo di Termini
The Cathedral of Termini

This is the current Cathedral in Termini Imerese. The former Cathedral was constructed in the 5th or 6th century and named Saint Giacomo. Is it possible that Saint James stopped in Termini on his way from the Holy Land to Spain after the death of Jesus? This earlier Cathedral was consecrated by Pope Innocent III in 1209, and I believe there is a plaque concerning this event. The fire in the sacristy about 1500 ruined all the records. Some of the original walls are still standing and can be seen behind the home of Joe Navarra, not far from the present Cathedral. Present day records begin about 1540.
