Centro Storico Review

Many of the town's buildings were constructed three centuries ago using lava; the black buildings combine with Baroque architecture to give the city a singular appearance. Nowhere is this clearer than in the centro storico (historic center). Don't miss the stunning Piazza Università, a nerve center made interesting by the facade of a majestic old university building, and the nearby Castello Ursino.
