This cathedral is right on the main square in Catania and is free to visit, so if you are in the square it is definitely worth popping in for 15 minutes or so. It's a stunning building from the outside, and while the inside isn't ornate it is still worth a look and it's nice and cool so you can... More

This is one of the most beautiful squares in Sicily, made of lava stones with the big stone Elephant in the middle of it. The is squared is also home of city's town hall, cathedral, museums, fountain with a river passing by an amazing fish market.

This church is so pretty on the outside and looks stunning in the sunshine - great for photos. It's quite plain on the inside though worth popping in - there are some good paintings and the alter is decorated and quite lovely.

the central square of Catania is full of surprises and the Duomo is beautiful. There is so much to see in Catania and so many people just give it a miss and move on to Taormina or Siracusa. So stop a few nights here amd have a good look around. You will like what you see,

Not the grandest cathedral, but worth visiting. Not as over the top as some, which may disappoint. But it is a lovely calm space to spend a little time in.

It is right in the city center so you won't miss it. At the end of the Via Etnea. We passed it often.

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
