Catania centro storico: Location and surroundings of this property

Piazza Federico di Svevia is one of the places of the city of Catania of greater historical and architectural interest due to the ancient castle on it: the Ursino Castle. Built between 1239 and 1250, the Ursino Castle was born within the defensive project of the eastern sicilian coasts and stood on a promontory surrounded by the sea. The building project was designed and built by the architect Riccardo da Lentini. Because of the Etna eruption of 1669, the lava that flowed south of the castle, in the direction of the sea, surrounded it from the west and east with two arms of magma, which filled the ditches and reduced the "apparent" height of the castle from the new road level. In the 16th century it became a temporary residence of the Viceroys, and part of its structure was used as a prison. The graffiti and inscriptions made by the prisoners are still visible on the ground floor of the building. At the end of the 19th century, the spaces around the castle and the ancient moat were used as urban green, thus creating a large square for the local community, nowadays very popular for the numerous typical restaurants. In 1934 it was restored to the original Swabian and Renaissance style, and became the seat of the Civic Museum of Catania.
