The arches of the navy welcome everyone in Catania to the side of the port.
It is a series of 56 arches, built using both lava and limestone rock, on which the railway line passes from the Catania station to Siracusa.
They were built in 1869 by the French engineer Petit.
A part of the arches was installed directly on the sea floor, and remained on the sea until the thirties, following the construction of the new port; today all the arches rest on the mainland.
The arches of the navy are now one of the characteristic architectural elements of Catania, and are still used as a railway viaduct, even if it's planed the undergrounding of the railway line and a desirable use of the top part of the arches as a panoramic walk.
