Piazza Bellini

Recommended
Blending eastern and western architecture, this is one of the city's most beautiful squares. Three churches stand here: La Martorana, San Cataldo, and Santa Caterina, a late 16C building with an 18C dome and rich interior decoration. It features an amazing marble bas-relief (on the right hand side) depicting the Shipwreck of Jonah.
