Piazza del Duomo and the Elephant Fountain

Piazza Duomo, 1, 95124 Catania CT, Italy

The Piazza del Duomo is the city’s hub and where you’ll find many notable historic buildings—including the Duomo itself, which was originally built in 1070 but rebuilt after an earthquake in the 1600s. This Baroque reconstruction earned the entire city center UNESCO World Heritage status. Within the square is the iconic Fontana dell’Elefante, a black lava elephant statue carrying an obelisk on its back.
