    Chiesa della Badia di Sant'Agata

    October 23, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    On our way back to our apartment we decided we should step inside at least one church while we are here in Catania so we stopped by the Chiesa della Badia di Sant’Agata, adjacent to the Cattedrale di Sant’Agata. With its elegant concave-convex façade, this 18th century church was rebuilt between 1733 and 1767 after the Catania earthquake.

    Compared to many of the other churches we have visited, this one has a real simplicity that highlights the amazing chandelier, the dramatic Carrara marble floors and amber-coloured altars in Castronovo marble. While the inside of the dome is very simple, it offers 360-degree panoramic views, but we decided we didn’t want to make the climb. We had done quite a lot of walking today and had already admired the views of Catania from the top of the Castello Ursino.

    After quite a big walking day we spent the afternoon relaxing and enjoying some down time.

    Chiesa di Sant' Agata alla Badia

    May 20, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌬 23 °C

    Heute liegt uns Catania erneut zu Füßen. Die Kuppel der Chiesa di Sant' Agata alla Badia bietet dafür einen perfekten 360 Grad Blick. Aufgrund seiner Lage ist der Ausblick noch etwas spannender als gestern. Begleitet von Techno-Beats aus einem benachbarten Gundstück warten wir darauf, ob der Ätna noch seine Spitze preis gibtRead more

    Catania from above Pt.2

    May 20, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌬 23 °C

    Neuer Tag, neues Glück. Diesmal der Blick von der Chiesa St. Agata neben der Kathedrale ins weite Rund am Fusse des Ätna. Strahlender Sonnenschein, von weit unten tönt die Strassenband mit gute Laune Reggaeton, auf der anderen Seite dröhnt feinster elektronischer Beat nach oben. So kann der Tag beginnen.Read more
