Cathedral of Sant'Agata, Interior

Catania, on the east coast is Sicily's second largest city. The cathedral's construction was started at the end of the 11th century.
Saint Agatha is the patron saint of Catania and as it goes suffered a terrible fate after rejecting the advances of a Roman suitor. Her breasts were cut off and she was sentenced to death at the stake. It is said that the cathedral was built on the site of her martyrdom.

While it is usually too dark inside buildings like this to capture a sharp picture without a tripod, I really like the texture it has given the photograph; it looks like a painting.
