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. Duomo di Siracusa is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Syracuse Edition.

  • The Cathedral is located in the Centre of Ortigia and is one of the most characteristic tell of the story of Syracuse, is a work not to be missed.

  • We probably should have gone in but instead we sat on the steps and ate our delicious ice creams from Bel Bon and watched the world go by.  more »
  • A cathedral is worth a visit, for the beauty within and for the emotions it arouses. Obviously you have to be believers to prove certain emotions ...! Really impressive!

  • 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!
