  • a gem, well maintained. with the two buildings facing each other with Majesty and elegance. next to piazza del duomo, is really a pretty sight.

  • The square is wonderful in continuity with the magnificence of the city's urban layout, which i don't know if all visitors are able to grasp the importance and modernity for a 17th-century city: wide streets, outlets to the sea, glimpses that at the end of the avenues give a glimpse of the most beautiful monuments. Unfortunately I did not get to see the inside of the building.

  • The square, Suite instead of the Cathedral, has charm, without being amazing. On the other hand, the courtyards of the Palace's sumptuous, well drawn.

  • Nice piazza, but would benefit hugely from less motorised traffic going through it. Make it properly pedestrian and add some bars or cafés and it's instantly one of Catania's nicest piazzas...
  • Great place to sit down in a cafe' and people watch while admiring the architecture
  • Beautiful location to admire the classic European architecture, have some coffee and snacks out in the open in good weather. Has lots of fabric stores nearby.
  • Very nice and animated place. It is a place full of energy.
  • Ok to pass by. Nothing really special.
