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.

  • Not to be missed. See then the Doric columns embedded in the walls of the Cathedral makes it clear how the history of architecture, is nothing more than a distant eras including physical overlap.

  • The Cathedral is located in the Centre of a beautiful square. Never seen a temple of Athena inside a cathedral. Magnificent

  • The exterior architecture is very beautiful and giant, but I don't understand why it is refreshed so new.
  • The foundation of the cathedral dates back to the 7 century before Christ.
  • Beautiful cathedral in Ortigia, one of the top attractions of the town, it is worth a visit._
  • One of the clearest examples of Cristian culture that reuse Greek temples. Very nice and extraordinarily white.
  • Temple with different building styles. Very unique.
