The holy site of martyrdom of Saint Agatha, Duomo Di Catania or Catania Cathedral is considered a local landmark and dates back to 11th century and was built in the Normal style of architecture. Destroyed later in the earthquake of 17th century, it was reconstructed in the Baroque style.
The longitudinal building has three naves with a transept and three apses in Norman lava stone. The remains of the original Norman cathedral can be still seen in some places. Six pillars of the old cathedral were used in the reconstruction and still stand strong.
The inside of the Cathedral is proportionate and there is a tomb dedicated to the famous composer Vincenzo Bellini who was also a citizen of Catania. The Chapel of our lady houses number of tombs of the kings of Aragon and two Sarcophagi including the one of wife Frederick III.
In the right apse of the Cathedral, there are sculptures and Frescos dedicated to the patron Saint Agatha. The cathedral also exhibits a 1669 Fresco depicting the eruption of Mount Etna and the disastrous lava that took over the city.
Stunning Frescos, huge choir stalls and various tombs make it worth a visit.
