Chiesa di Santa Caterina information
On Piazza Bellini's northern edge, this ornate baroque church was built between 1566 and 1596, though many of its smooth white statues and whirling frescoes and much of its gilded stucco were added in the 18th century. Noteworthy features include the carved marble presbytery, the altar's silver angels and the statue of St Catherine in the right transept, carved by Antonello Gagini in 1534.
