"The Cathedral" Duomo - Cattedrale di Sant'Agata Tip by Polly74

  The Cathedral square
by Polly74

Catania has a really magnificent Cathedral.
Though extensively rebuilt on Baroque and neo-classical models, the oldest part of the cathedral (duomo) was constructed
in 1092.
Several royal personages are entombed there, including Frederick III of Aragon and Queen Constance,
wife of Frederick IV .
