The cathedral of Sant'Agata in Catania stands, according to tradition, on the spot where Saint Agatha died a martyr's death in 251.
Catania is one of eight places recognized by UNESCO where the devastation wrought by a major earthquake in 1693 resulted in a massive public rebuilding program and the construction of fanciful late baroque palazzos, cathedrals, churches and other buildings. (The others are Caltagirone, Militello, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo, Ragusa and Scicli.)
