“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Everything was great, from the outside to the inside architecture of the Sf. Agatha’s “duomo”, to the elephant monument, the splendid fountain and even the fish market.

“Beautiful Catherdral in Heart of Catania”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

St. Agatha's Cathedral is situated at the south end of Via Etna and on the Piazza Duomo. I found the basilica unique in the use of lava stone from the nearby Mt. Etna in its construction and decoration. The black lava is used for the altar and ambo and adds a striking look to the sanctuary. The south east corner of the church holds the Chapel of Agatha including relics of the 3rd century saint. While I was there many people of all ages came by to pray for a few minutes before the relics. An impressive sight!

“As Duomo's go OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Easy access, and commanding one side of the Piazza it is worth a visit, but the Roman remains below ground were not open.
