Cattedrale di Sant'Agata (Duomo) Review

The Giovanni Vaccarini–designed facade of the cathedral dominates the Piazza del Duomo; composer Vincenzo Bellini is buried inside. Also of note are the three apses of lava that survive from the original Norman structure and a fresco from 1675 in the sacristy that portrays Catania's submission to Etna's attack. Underneath the Cathedral are the ruins of Greco-Roman baths: guided tours of the museum and baths are available with a reservation.
