  • The Cathedral is the mother church of Catholic worship in Catania, the Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Agatha virgin and martyr, patron of the city of Catania and is situated in the historical centre of the city. A visit is mandatory for anyone visiting the beautiful Catania.

  • In my one-day itinerary of this church was. But not sure if it was his ornament. A very simple facade. Although black and white like many buildings of Baroque architecture in Catania, but very simple. Also just inside. The sarcophagus containing the relics of St. Agatha. Several paintings. You can see the foundations of the old church at 11.

  • It's probably the first church dedicated ti Saint Agatha. The interior hosts several noticeable artworks.
  • The sacred building, dates back to the year 264 ad, and this is the first temple dedicated to the patroness of Catania.
