This Cathedral of Piazza Armerina is beautiful and very big, outside and inside. A place of prayer but also of discovery. It is possible to taste a good granita on the main square. The colors of the cathedral are blue and white inside.

Built on the foundations of an earlier church of the 15th century and based on a design by architect Orazio Torriani, its construction began in 1604 and ended in 1719, while the dome was added in 1768. It became the seat of the Diocese of Piazza when it was created in 1817.

The interior of the cathedral is dominated by the central dome. It contains a cross painted on both sides, showing the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ, and a baptistery by Antonello Gagini.
