Its one of 118 in the town and mostly rebuilt after various earthquakes. Just one end survives from its norman origin. There are some very interesting painted murals around the alter, the rest is forgettable.

The elegant centre of Catania, rebuilt after the earthquake of 1693. Dominated by the ornate cathedral, the quiirky elephaant fountain and (weather permitting) the ever-present view of Etna brooding over the city northwards along the Via Etnea

Dirtiest town I have ever been in. Totally depressing. I don't know why they make this a port stop on a cruise.

The center of Catania - really beautiful buildings - is very small, and this piazza is in the middle. So, is you want to see Catania - go there

Went here during a recent cruise visit. Well worth having a look at this beautiful church. It is set in a lovely square.

Yes. It is really easy and close, just exit from the port, turn left and walk following the archs. You'll arrive at "Porta Uzeda" at your right. Cross it and you'll be there.
