The Monastery of San Nicolò l'Arena or the Cassinese abbey of San Niccolò l'Arena is an ecclesiastical complex located in Piazza Dante in the historic center of Catania and consisting of an important Benedictine convent building and a monumental eighteenth-century church. It was founded by monks from the monastery of the same name located near Nicolosi who, in the middle of the 16th century, asked the city senate for permission to build within the walls, as they were threatened by the eruptions of Etna and by the presence of brigands.
