The use of black lava for the entire interior makes this cathedral unique. It gets a very dark, sober mood, especially if the sun is not shining.

Glad to be here on the last day of St. Agatha festival. You can see a lot of people filling the streets and bazaars full of Itallian local foods and tastes. And the church is huge and great!
