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

Catania is a city not in the Focus of tourists.but you can find fine examples of Greek,staufer Kings and baroque architecture.the duomo is typically for the Lava Stone buildings.together with the townsquare and the fishmarket worth a visit.i like this city and the inhabitants,not tourist-orientated.

What I was very impressed with was the lectern that was sculpted metal with many reliefs on it. The altar also had similar carvings. Lots of details on both of them. Impressive duomo.

The cathedral sits within a large square in the centre of town. The buildings are black and white and made of lava stone. Unique and worth a visit. Town centre is compact for walking.., but we did notice the little tourist train in the square if you find walking is limited.

The church is beautiful but the people attending the morning mass are very noisy and they are only interested in the statue of St Agatha
