  • Let's face it, Italy is mostly about churches and duomos regardless of where you are. In that sense, this a worthy representation of the devotion to St Agatha who appears prominent throughout Catania. 
  • A circular Church on the one hand around you, how to limit yourself, for more You enlarge, for split ends to infinity: try to put you at the center of the Church and watching before around and then at the top; understand the space that becomes infinite and immense elevate you and feel yourself. The architecture of Vaccarini has it all!

  • This is a small elegant church. Inside is bright, beautiful, uncluttered, unusual for a baroque church. The marble colors and patterns can be appreciated clearly. Then pay to go to the Dome. The steps...  more »

  • 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.
  • Very nice.
  • Artwork of Giovan Battista Vaccarini, made from 1735 to 1767. The Church is surmounted by a large and beautiful dome on a drum octagonal Prism.

  • Beautiful church. But even nicer is the view that can be admired from the top of the dome. You have to climb many steps and go for tall and narrow environments, not recommended for those who suffer from claustrophobia. For the rest I would highly recommend getting and enjoying the view, you see all over Catania and Mount Etna.
