The city of Catania is the largest and most important city on the island after the capital Palermo. The city can be found in the central-eastern part of the island and overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. The town has a beautiful historic center with some highlights from the Baroque architecture. The historic center of the city can, therefore, be found on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Catania was founded in the eighth century BC by Greek settlers. At the time, Catania developed into one of the most important ports in the Mediterranean. When the Romans took over power in the third century BC, Catania had become one of the most famous places on the island.
Later the city was still in the hands of the Ostrogoths, the Byzantines, the Moors, and the Normans. All these different civilizations have left their mark on the city, which means that there is still a lot of antiquity in the town today. The best examples of this are a Roman and a Greek theater. The reason that the historic center of Catania was built in the Baroque style has everything to do with an eruption of Mount Etna in the seventeenth century and a major earthquake several decades later.
