  • 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.

  • Nice place. The exhibition is kind of small. Be sure to visit the rooftop terrace if possible - really nice view.
  • The theming needed some work, but this might have been due to a lack of content. The museum felt pretty sparse.
  • The Diocesan Museum of Catania, housed in the old Seminary of the clerics to the Duomo Cathedral, houses all connected to the adjacent architecturally mobile furniture historian of the Cathedral and the Bishop's seat. It was an initiative worthy of praise.

  • Really a place of privileged. ... from the terrace you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Catania, the Cathedral, the square and the elephant fountain. Very interesting collection of sacred objects related to Sant'Agata and the famous "vara" used for the procession of 4 and 5 February.

  • Magnificent view from the terrace, and very interesting collection of sacred relics, including the precious vara of St Agatha!
