The Ancient Royal and Eminent Basilica Collegiate of Our Lady of the Alms (in italian known as Antichissima Regia ed Insigne Basilica Collegiata di Maria Santissima dell'Elemosina) better known as Basilica della Colleggiata is a church in Catania, Sicily, southern Italy. Finished in 1794, it is an example of Sicilian Baroque.

The church was firstly in the early Middle Ages, but rebuilt in the early 18th century, after the earthquake of 1693 that had destroyed most of the city. The church was elevated to a collegiate church by Pope Eugenius IV.
