What to see in Catania

The city centre is full of Baroque architecture. This was also due to the volcano Etna, which destroyed the city in 1693 along with an earthquake. This gave the city builders and artists the opportunity to make it what it is today.

The dominant feature of the city is a fountain with an elephant, which was made of black lava stone. It is located in Piazza del Duomo in the city center. The main shopping boulevards are also connected to this square, as well as many restaurants.
