I visited during the feast of St. Agatha and the Duomo was en fete, richly decorated. An important landmark in Piazza Duomo spilling out the festive atmosphere with the procession with the statue and loads of lighted candles.

In Italy you can basically wander into any ol' church you find along the way. And some of them are pretty darn amazing! However, I thought the piazza duomo is best enjoyed outside, with a cup of granita. The inside of the church is not that special. Although there are some remnants of old roman ruins visible in the floor... More

We visited many places in Sicily and the memory of some will stay with me for a very long time and this is certainly one of those.

Sicilian baroque is famous and magnificent and this is one example. The monumental cathedral with Saint Agatha cult is very nice.

A great place to visit while in Catania. Hang out in the elephant square nearby, grab an espresso, and enjoy the people-watching!

Sicilian Baroque, more particularly Catanese Baroque, is exemplified here. Some Norman bits, tomb of Bellini. The church in the side street adjacent is worth a look as well. On the main square.

Love the architecture. Really loved walking through it. Don't forget to check out the Roman baths beneath the church. Facing the church, the entrance is to he very right of the building 10euros to get in (a little pricey) but still interesting non the less and very few people know about it.

In the middle of piazza duomo, duomo di catania is very interesting building specially by sculptures and architectures. You must visit that nice cathedral when in catania.

Fabulous views from the top of this, up a very narrow stairway, for three euros. Inside was quiet and contemplative.

I didn't go inside the Duomo but just stayed around in Piazza Duomo to watch the families in the evening. Catania has a very different feel to Palermo- much less 'menacing' and tense - it felt like a family city. However, it's probably not worth making a special trip here, although I enjoyed the opera theatre - Teatro Bellini.
