Cattedrale di Sant'Agata (Duomo)

Cattedrale di Sant'Agata (Duomo) Review

The Giovanni Vaccarini-designed facade of the cathedral dominates the Piazza del Duomo. Inside the church, composer Vincenzo Bellini is buried. 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. A guided tour of the museum is available with a reservation. Across from the Cattedrale are underground ruins of Greco-Roman baths.
