Situated on the east coast of Sicily Island, Catania offered good food, beautiful scenery and baroque archi- tecture. The city was rebuilt after it had been severely damaged by the eruption of nearby Mt. Etna in 1669. Catania was completely destroyed by an earthquake in 1693. The Duke of Camastra, Viceroy of Sicily, supervised the plan for a new city, which was car- ried out by architect Giovanni Battista Vaccarini. The cathedral square, one of the major focal points of the city, is dominated by the great church, dedi- cated to St. Agatha, and by an elegant city hall. Inside the cathedral the tombs of St. Agatha and composer Vincenzo Bellini, the city's best-known son, provide the highlights. Nearby is the former Benedictine monastery, noted for its fine architectural detail. In the 13th century, Emperor Freder- ick II built Ursino Castle, one of the few monuments to survive the earth- quake. Surrounded by a moat and me- dieval towers, it is now a museum. ,-,,..f.,,,.--, - '. - '., .. - ' . - . ' - .14 r".

Picturesquely situ- ated on steep cliffs over- looking the Gulf of Anta- lya, the city is third in im- portance of Turkey's Mediterranean ports, after Mersin and Isken- derun 'The harboris not deep and ships of very shallow draft cannot pull into the harbor Cpictured top right this pagej. In re- cent years the growth of tourism has opened new avenues for Antalyais de- velopment. The city's se- clusion from industry, its miles of uncrowded beaches, its palm-shaded streets and parks, and the great wealth of relics of classical antiquity in its vicinity have accelerated Antalya into the Mediter- raneanls very own Turk- ish ullivieradn I llllll I llltllll-.
