What a great cathedral! As with most in Italy, this is a stunning Duomo. The architecture is magnificent. The square is clean and just wonderful. We were visiting friends that live in the area and they told us that this was a must see.
Must see Basilica when in Catania, without this blue Baroque style church Catania is nothing but small Sicilian city. You can simply enjoy the city vibes sitting in front of the cathedral. All the cities in Italy of any size have a cathedral. Some better that others. This one is middle of the road as far as the art.

Car hire. With crowds of up to 1,, strong, there are few mass expressions of devotion as popular as the Festa di Sant'Agata in Catania. The whole city turns out en masse, tens of thousands come from afar to express their gratitude or to pray for intercession and many others just come for the incredible atmosphere, the fireworks and the food! So important is Sant'Agata in the spiritual lives of the Catanesi that they celebrate her life twice a year: the first, most important festa takes place from 3rd - 5th February and remembers her martyrdom, while the second, held on 17th August, records the return of her mortal remains to the city from Constantinople in , after an absence of 86 years. Born into a Patrician family in Catania, the devoutly religious Sant'Agata soon attracted the amorous attentions of the Roman Proconsul Quintianus, who wished to take her as his wife. She refused, staunchly defending her honour and her faith and Quintianus's courtship quickly turned to religious persecution and psychopathic hatred. After enduring the horrific torture of being rolled on hot coals and having her breasts amputated, Sant'Agata died on 5th February
A must-do if you're in Catania. Compared to many towers in Italy, this one is an easy climb and the reward is great. Certainly a good way to spend 3 euro per person and would be good do do with kids. Fantastic views can be had from the rooftop. We got lucky by happening to be there at noon.
