  • The basilica Mary Almsgiving, better known as Collegiate basilica is on via Etnea. The façade, designed by Stefano Ittar, is a masterful example of Baroque Catania

  • The exterior is architecturally more interesting than the interior. There are more elaborate churches in Europe than this one. It is conveniently located by Via Entnea.  more »
  • This small church is that of the marriage as soon as spring comes not a day goes by without one sees the radiant bride and groom. And when I'm inside we understand why: this church is a gem.

  • Small but beautiful church, especially its exterior building is exquisite.
  • Very nice.
  • Splendid example of Baroque style.
  • Just a miracle of architecture
  • Over the centuries, the church became increasingly important and assumed by 1396 the title of Director of the Royal Chapel, being often frequenting the Aragonese and 1446 object, which was instituted a College of canons (hence the title of Collegiate Church).
