  • Beautiful building on the pedestrian Plaza to be quieter in the visits and take photos. Best to visit in the evening so it's not as hot.

  • In front of the Palacio degli Elefanti is celebrate Fontana Dell ' Elefante, Vaccarini's work under the reconstruction after the earthquake of 1693, the base is formed by a pedestal in white marble with 2 figures that symbolize the rivers of Catania-Simeto and Amenano. On top is the elephant-originally carved out of a single block of stone vulcanica-. In their flanks a saddle also in white marble where are carved the shields of Santa Agata, the patroness of Catania ... On the back of the elephant an Egyptian obelisk on top of which a sphere with a palm leaf and a bouquet of lilies symbols (martirio and purity) of Santa Agata. A beautiful symbol of the city.
