On April 15th of 1694 the first stone was laid and the church was full after just four months, so much so that August 16 was opened for worship in a solemn ceremony attended by all the elders of the County.The short time it took for the building indicates that it was a small church, inadequate to the demands of the new district of the town expanding.In 1718 it began, therefore, the same construction site of a larger church.Two "master builders" of Acireale, Joseph and John Archdeacon recovery, may have played a role in planning, and some architectural details of the elevations of the church of St. John are typical of the baroque monuments of the Aces and Catanese, like features pilasters embossed or monumental portal (which has significant similarities with the marble portal of the Cathedral of Acireale ).There is also a square.

The ledge, as it wants this style, is decorated with triglyphs and the gates are three bas-reliefs of winged two women holding up a lamp and two sphinxes at the sides.At the center, like crowning glory, is finally put the sign of the building, decorated with the coat of arms of the city, flanked by two lions anthropomorphic and surrounded by a garland of flowers.The lavish ballroom shows a ceiling fresco by Tino Del Campo Ragusa at the end of the nineteenth century, with an allegory of the arts and sciences and four medallions depicting the corners Dante, Michelangelo, Galileo and Vincenzo Bellini.Four large gilt-framed mirrors above the red damask sofa, red silk walls, curtains and a chandelier made of copper, consisting of a pumpkin with its branches, complete the furnishings.The other rooms, six in all (seven with the party room) are just as prestigious, dedicated to games and reading.A lovely garden setting makes it one of the most exclusive and pleasant city.
