  • This church is worth a visit as it is a jewel of the baroque of Catania. The audio guide allows you to learn the history of the monastery and to appreciate the paintings of Tuccari which decorate the Church. Beautiful main staircase although access to the site is via Teatro Greco 2. The visits are not possible every day; should inquire at the official site. Don't miss this visit worth it

  • All very nice, though they say it is not so safe, I was alone walking, and didn't see anything unusual.
