Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • You can't help but sit and marvel at this superb building, the architectural style, they don't build them like this anymore. The grandeur of the building will leave you breathless  more »
  • Wonderful building! If you know its history you will appreciate it even more. The ancient Greek originally built a temple for Athena here in the 5th century BC. You can still see the original columns....  more »

  • Very large esplanade surrounded by great historical buildings including the Cathedral. Nice at night as well as the lighting is well placed
  • Location is very good and for that the 4 stars. The rest is ok.. Italian breakfast is served in a cafe at the square across the main entrance. Service there was really bad and one of the 3 days we were supposed to have breakfast it was closed.
  • Beautiful places with friendly people. Foods was special!
  • Excellent location, helpful hosts
  • Stayed here for a few months, amazing. Hope to go back soon!
