News on Tremestieri Etneo


Tremestieri Etneo is a city of about 19,000 inhabitants in the Etna area, at 400 m a.s.l. The heart of the town is crossed by the Via Etnea that, starting in Catania, climbs up the Etna. The town planning is of late 1800’s-early 1900’s origin.

Tremestieri Etneo has some interesting religious buildings,

The Mother Church is dedicated to the Madonna della Pace; it has a fine façade framed by pilaster strips and flanked by a bell-tower and a parish hall. Inside, it has three naves and beautiful 1600’s wooden statues of the Madonna della Pace and St. Barbara.

The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie features a striking color contrast between its blue bell-tower and the pink walls. It houses a fine baptismal font.

The minor Madonna dell’Idria’s, Sant’Antonio da Padova’s (1600’s), the Maria Santissima Immacolata’s and San Vito’s (1600’s) churches are also interesting.
