The name Santa Domenica Vittoria is derived from a Calabrian saint who fell victim to the Roman persecution of Christians during the era of Diocletian.
Santa Domenica Vittoria, located in the Metropolitan City of Messina in Sicily, southern Italy, is a town and comune. Positioned 7 kilometers (4 miles) to the north of Randazzo within the Nebrodi Mountains Range, it rests at an elevation of 1,080 meters (3,540 feet) above sea level, offering panoramic vistas that encompass the entire northern Etna Valley.
Despite being located in the Metropolitan City of Messina, the town adopts the telephone prefix for the Metropolitan City of Catania, owing to its location right on the boundary between these two administrative regions.
This comune shares its borders with the following municipalities: Floresta, Montalbano Elicona, Randazzo, and Roccella Valdemone.
