This was a beautiful piece of architecture located in the center of Catania. We enjoyed the baroque beauty from both inside and out. It is definitely worth a visit!

Our first views were at night and the square and fountain were lite up making for a romantic setting. Lots of activity during the day and many shops and restaurants adjoining. One evening the next square north had an outdoor screen setup to watch the eurocup. Thousands milled about the squares.

Generally, Catania is known for its baroque architecture. The Cathedral is one main example of that. In my opinion, it will be a nice visit for everyone, because you can find out more about the city and its history, and also, admire the architecture and the artsy details.

In front of the cathedral is street market with unpleasant smell and atmosphere. Streets were dirty long time after market was closed. Building is surrounded by other ageing buildings . Sadly we couldn't realy enjoy the view

Majestically elegant! Breathtaking! You should especially walk by in the evening so you can enjoy its illumination.

Situated in the main square of Catania, a real must see, very beautiful! Also the steps provided a great resting place, where everyone including us just liked to sit and watch the world go by, maybe enjoying the odd ice cream that was available from the many surrounding cafes! Entrance by the way is free, but remember to be respectful... More

Lovely cathedral, a must see in Catania. The surrounding plazas are lovely as well and worth visiting when you are in the area.

Certainly a must see on a city tour albeit if short on time I would prefer the amphitheater over the Duomo.

Well located, the architecture is an ancient one while it is being well kept. It attracts many tourists and groups. Visit + Pictures
