About Catania

The affects of which have been felt by Catania several times over the years. The distinct dark grey volcanic rocks used in the construction of many buildings represent this fact.

Catania was rebuilt gradually over the years after it was completely destroyed due to a violent earth quake in 1169. Catania was initially part of the Roman empire but was later taken over by the Greeks. However, most of Catania's grand palaces and wide streets were built in the 18th century when noble families from across the eastern Sicily began to flock to Catania.

Catania features many Baroque buildings and churches along with a number of Roman theatres, Piazzas and beautiful palaces. Catania with its black and white buildings offers a magnificent effect. Catania also offers a choice of restaurants and large number of shops scattered around the main centre.
