Church of the Badia of Sant'Agata
Opposite the north side of the Cathedral, on the via Vittorio Emanuele, the church of St. Agatha Abbey, and its ex monastery annex (now owned by the municipality) occupy an entire block.

The soft fabric of the façade, gathered in rhythmical gentle waves, draws attention to itself which would otherwise be distracted by the other baroque elements of the Cathedral, the fountain of the Elephant and the Municipal Hall.
The edifice we see today rests upon the ruins of the ancient church and monastery, dedicated in 1620 to St. Agatha by Erasmo Cicala, and later destroyed b y the 1693 earthquake.
Via Raddusa 2-6, Catania
