Penis in Sicily is called La Minchia .
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 .
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
