Striking cathedral sat on the easterly edge of a nice square Not the most ornate cathedrals inside but certainly worth a look around and a bit of a sit and a quiet contemplation in the cool interior

Situated in the main square of Catania. Some of the buildings were destroyed during a mount Etna eruption. The inside is very beautiful, but we didn’t have time to visit the extra parts that you needed to pay for
