The cathedral is, as you'd expect, in the historic centre of Catania and quite some building. The interior is impressive, and note Bellini's tomb on the right-hand side, near the main entrance. Although he died in 1835, it wasn't until 1876 that his remains were moved to the city of his birth. There is also the Museo Belliniano in his... More

The Duomo and Piazza are a wonder to see. It is surrounded by tourists, locals and plenty of beggars. Beware and hang on to your belongings. The cathedral has been destroyed and rebuilt several times because of earthquakes and eruptions of the nearby Mount Etna. It was originally constructed in 1078-1093. It was almost completely destroyed by an earthquake in... More

The Duomo and Piazza are wonderful. Busy place with Historic buildings. And don't for to see the morning fish market behind the Piazza. It was amazing. I love the out door markets in Italy with all the fresh fish fruit a vegetables.

The Duomo di Catania is the most important church in Catania. The inside is dramatic and beautiful. It is very easy to walk to and is on an only pedestrian way.

Resurrection procession and Easter Mass was very nice, this is worth a visit. On the square and in front of the church are many of the beggars, watch out for your valuables, they are a little violent.

The Duomo di Catania is beautiful and most definitely eye-catching. The unique St. Agatha features (patron saint of Catania) make it especially interesting, but my favorite part is what the Duomo contributes to the general atmosphere in the square. Multiple days during the week, you can hear the beautiful melody of the choir throughout the square and enjoy hearing the... More
