  • Emblematic of the Sicilian Baroque, the basilica of San Sebastiano cannot be visited. Already the front elevation appears in all its magnificence to the careless glance of the passing motorist and directed elsewhere (the Church is located along one of the main roads of Acireale. Striking at sunset or with lights in the dusk.

  • During the feast of the patron saint of Acireale, in fact Saint Sebastian (20 January) the city fills with color and full of unique events. Who hasn't ever seen I can only recommend you to go and see this beautiful Basilica, located in front of the historic market of fruits and fish of Acireale.

  • This temple dedicated to venerassimo San Sebastian is one of the most beautiful baroque churches of eastern Sicily. Its façade, preceded by balustrade on which rise the figures of the old testament, is spread over three registers in the whitest white stone adorned with portals, Windows, balustrades and saints really remarkable, even in the evening that enhances the sculptural details joint illumination. The Interior of the Basilica is solemn in its three naves and a Baroque ornamentation continues in the marble altars, in stucco and frescoes and paintings by local painters with stories of the Saint. Not to be missed.

  • Visited in FAI spring days. The Interior is a succession of works of art, especially of the master of Pietro Paolo Vasta.

  • One of the most beautiful churches in the area. She was chosen as a church of my marriage after having shot many others. Large, beautifully realized is a charming and picturesque Church. I suggest anyone passing in the area or are turning to choose where to marry. Unfortunately, the basilica is located in a difficult point with regard to the roadway. For how easy it is to reach it becomes complex Park to visit. Need a little patience.
