  • The Church itself is not anything special that you can't find in other churches in the area, but the glimpses on the way up to the dome and the view from up there you won't forget them anymore! With a few euros (3) you can enjoy a 360-degree view of Catania, Piazza Duomo with the backdrop of the Harbour and the sea on one side, Mount Etna and its slopes on the other. I've been in a morning of December with my boyfriend at Christmas time, and we really enjoyed it because there was hardly anyone there! From Carpenter who lives in another city, in fact, I didn't know her and I found out that it is still little known to many local friends. We were there for almost two hours, seated with his back propped at the dome, enjoying the Sun and the view, with a silent "surreal" to Catania, interrupted only occasionally by some voice (and some notes) from the city at our feet. Wonderful! PS. Council to get information on schedules for visiting, why not open the whole day, and it seems to me that there may be variations.

  • Located in the street along the Cathedral is a spectacular example of Sicilian Baroque, often open as hosts various events and it is possible, with a one-way ticket 3 euro, climb up to the cupola.

  • I didn't have time to climb the dome to admire the city and I regret it. The nave is very harmonious though the huge chandelier to the Center is disproportionate.

  • €3 to climb to the top for great views over Catania. Bargain.
  • A very small church, which interior is round without poles. Dome climbing costs 2 euro, but it is a must. You can view Mt Etna, the whole city and the port with navy aircraft carrier from it.
  • Beautiful church, not like the others in Catania. A walk on the roof is mandatory, despite the stairs.
  • Worth visiting.
  • Very nice.
