Catania is an ancient city both medieval and baroque that was often completely destroyed by earthquakes, by the Etna eruptions and by different wars. For this reason here there are very few historical constructions: in the Catania cathedral you can see the ancient ruins of a Roman amphitheatre, of some Roman spas and of some Arab-Norman palaces. This city was completely rebuilt during the XVIII century. Catania is placed at the bottom of the Etna volcano on the Ionic coast. It is an important industrial centre and its territory is characterized by the presence of many citrus plantations. Today the Catania historical centre is crossed by two main streets: the first one is Via dei Crociferi where you can admire ancient palaces and baroque churches, the second one is Via Etnea that ends with a wonderful view of the Etna. Here there is the Catania University that dates back to the 1434 including the Volcanological Institute with its museum and the Astronomy Institute. The Dome Square (Piazza Duomo),this is the main square in Catania being characterized by harmonious XVIII century palaces and by its central monument representing the symbol of the city: the Fountain with the Elephant. This is a Roman monument made up by stone formed by lava. Always in this square you can admire the Cathedral with the Sant’Agata Chapel where there is the very precious Sant’Agata treasure and the Palace of the Elephants (Palazzo degli Elefanti) that is the seat of the Catania municipality. From this square you can arrive to the most important street of this city: Via Etnea where there are wonderful baroque buildings with their lava powder façades and many shops and pastry stores. The Ursino Castle this is the unique medieval construction visible today in Catania. It was built in 1240 to protect this city from the sea but it was also used as a royal residence and as a prison.
