  • At the entrance of the Church greet you behind a desk a boy and a girl gestissimo and smiling. If you want to, with €1, Luke brings you to the altar of Saint Agatha, and in a clear, concise but comprehensive communication, pleasant and charming, you back centuries, and it explains everything, the martyrdom of the Saint, and the remains of the furnace kept above l-altar. ... on the Church ... on devotion, with historical and religious references. A wonderful break in the visit to this town that gets you every step of the way.

  • Not really into churches but the inside is fairly interesting as it is part circular under the high domed ceiling. Climb the stairs to get to roof and walk around the dome. €3 for over 12s (free under 12)2017. Good views. Pay an extra €1 to use the binoculars.
  • Come to visit the dome of St Agata church, it's the best view in Catania. I won't leave a picture to let y'all surprise yourselves.
  • Best place in Catania to see Etna, the city and the sea from above.
  • Great and wonderfull
  • €3 to climb to the top for great views over Catania. Bargain.
