It's the big city church, worth a quick visit, but nowhere near as beautiful or interesting as some of Sicily's other stunning marble and mosaic-filled cathedrals.

Beautiful inside and out. Definitely worth the visit. The piazza in front of it is a nice place as well.

Impressive Baroque facade. Inside., very large nave. Solid decor. Not fancy. Wall paintings dating to 18th century. Poorly illuminated, making it hard to study properly. A miss.

Catania' treasures were located in this church. It is worth to have a quick stop. The church is located at the end of Via Etnea.

This cathedral with its beautifully crafted apses which survived the earthquake of 1693 is a "must visit" when in Sicily. It has a stunning Baroque façade on which are tagged granite columns taken from the nearby Roman amphitheatre. Relics which are paraded through the city on the saint's festival days are on display. A Roman sarcophagus that contains the ashes... More
