star-5
247 Reviews

With its centuries-old baroque buildings, timeworn paving stones and elaborate stairways, Via Crociferi (Via dei Crociferi) is unashamedly photogenic, so much so that a number of Italian films have shot scenes on its sidewalks. Walking the length of Via Crociferi is like taking a stroll through the city’s history, starting at the south end of the street, where the Parco Archeologico Greco-Romano di Catania is home to the city’s most notable Roman ruins and the medieval Castello Ursino towers in the distance.

Via Crociferi is most famous for its Sicilian Baroque architecture and its striking churches and 18th-century palazzi form an important part of Catania’s UNESCO World Heritage site. Highlights include the Arco di San Benedetto, the iconic archway which marks the start of the street and dates back to 1704; the Church of San Giuliano, designed by architect Giovan Battista Vaccarini; the dramatic portico of the Jesuit College; the magnificent Villa Cerami; and the Vincenzo Bellini house museum.

Catania: the Baroque revival

Catania: the Baroque revival

Catania like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, following the devastating earthquake that destroyed the city in 1693, has been able to reinvent itself by taking on the appearance of the Baroque city that we still see today. Large urban spaces and grandiose architectural forms are the predominant aspects of this reconstruction. Starting from the inevitable Cathedral of Sant'Agata, we will then climb up to the dome of the Badia di Sant'Agata from which you can embrace the whole city with your eyes, then we will walk in Via Etnea to discover the legends that are hidden here up to the culmination of the Baroque splendor guarded by Via Crociferi.
