Duomo di Siracusa, one of Sicily's most notable religious monuments, features intricate Baroque architecture and a rich historical legacy. On the Isle of Ortigia near the southern coast of Syracuse, the church is a large repository of religious relics, statues, and the remains of saints. Architect Andrea Palma designed the large outer columns along the facade, which were completed in 1753. Explore the inner areas of the church, such as the fifth-century Temple of Athena. Be sure to delve into the site's catacombs, included in the entrance fee.

  • The duomo of Siracusa built on an ancient Greek temple, leaves the visitor speechless majestic columns of the ancient temple of Athena are visible from the outside and inside are even more beautiful

  • A wide open space which allows you to view the buildings. Fabulous in the sunshine & really welcoming & romantic at night. 
  • To know Syracuse can not visit the Duomo and reached the waterfront in a splendid walk through the historic center of the city

  • One of the clearest examples of Cristian culture that reuse Greek temples. Very nice and extraordinarily white.
  • Even if the beautiful Doric columns of the Temple of Athens were the only thing to see, it would be worth it.
  • Temple with different building styles. Very unique.
  • Costs a couple of Euros to wander around inside, but worth it. Beautiful architecture.
  • Lovely church. Unique.
