Catania Cathedral

Catania Cathedral

This stunning cathedral is the main church in Catania and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s made of stone and black lava which gives it its unique black and blue hue. It was originally built back in the 11th century but it has been redesigned and rebuilt many times due to earthquakes and Mount Etna erupting. In February each year, thousands of people flock here to celebrate the Festival of Saint Agata, who this cathedral is dedicated to.
