Continuing along the west side of the garden, you will come to the Avenue of Illustrious Men which was built and inaugurated in 1880. It houses sculptural busts of important figures from the city of Catania, such as Giovanni Verga, Federico de Roberto and Luigi Capuana. Do not miss the 1879 Concert Cloister, completely Moorish in style and used for classical music concert performances in the 1960s. To finish off this beautiful tour, you can admire a clock quadrant made from evergreen plants and a calendar made from bundles of grass, modified by gardeners every day so visitors know exactly what the date is.
We encourage all tourists to visit the Bellini Garden as it is a place where you can relax, feel refreshed and sit in shady areas to shelter from the sun.
