Very beautiful from the outside with beautiful architecture.

It is a must to visit and get information on the tragic death of the Patron Saint St Agatha. We were lucky to be on time for the celebrations of the feast of St. Agatha.

August 17 is the day of St. Agatha and it the place to be. The litany is very nice and the fireworks are great and plenty.

I loved the Duomo of Catania, stunning building in or out. A perfect venue for reflection that is dry or wait. All year around specially during the festivals around the year. A very pronounced building like most of them in Sicily

very beautiful cathedral, and a lot of great detail. It houses the tomb of Bellini. several separate parts for prayer and for large central mass.

As many travelers to Europe know, there are what seems like an unlimited number of churches and cathedrals, and after one sees a goodly number of them, the draw to see another is limited.

the entire plaza is a baroque masterpiece with the church as its centerpiece. Take a seat in a pew and absorb the sanctity.
