  • Unfinished Church (you can tell right from the façade), from the inside out extremely white. If you go around lunch time: inside there is a sundial and the beam of light towards that now indicates the day of the year. Also of interest is the walk on the roof and costs €2

  • even if it isn't and has never been completed ... you can't see from the Colonnade incomplete ... remains one of the most beautiful churches of catania. big and majestic. the cloister also deserves a visit as throughout the whole.

  • The interest of this church is its façade unfinished and gigantic, really. The inside is a badge, white, cold banality. The chapel of the fallen from 14-18 is admirable but poorly preserved.

  • It's one of the biggest buildings of Catholic worship in Sicily, measuring 105 metres long and 48 metres wide and the aisles and around 71 metres to the transept, with a maximum height of about 66 metres at the dome.
