  • In the baroque palace of old Seminar Carpenter, on four floors well restored winding path Museum Centre which exhibits an impressive collection of religious jewellery, altar frontals, candlesticks, ciboria, monstrances, reliquaries, patens, reliquaries, other busts and then a picture gallery of paintings to sacred subjects, ending with the Fercola of Saint Agatha, a professional 17 tons of solid silver wagon used for the procession of the Holy parona. And if all that wasn't enough, we highlight the breathtaking views over the square, the Cathedral dome and the port side sea.

  • 60 + 40 two girlfriends for life who decide to celebrate together on the terrace of the Diocesan Museum. Pretty cool!!

  • There are eight halls with paintings, sculptures and memorabilia from "dead" clergymen. Do not come to Catania only to see it. 
  • The theming needed some work, but this might have been due to a lack of content. The museum felt pretty sparse.
  • Nice place. The exhibition is kind of small. Be sure to visit the rooftop terrace if possible - really nice view.
  • Magnificent view from the terrace, and very interesting collection of sacred relics, including the precious vara of St Agatha!
