  • Caves dug by slaves Athenians to derive useful stone to the construction of the city, the Latomie dei Cappuccini occur today as a magical place and unique. After the fall of the time after the earthquake of 1693, the Latomie were entrusted to the Capuchin Friars who established a fantastic garden. Between steep cliffs and unpredictable Gates takes a path full of surprises: two outdoor theaters, lush greenery and wild, sudden lights after shady subways: emotion and wonder. Not always are open to the public to ask the company to stay, insisting on a private visit (Annalisa, one of the escorts is available and talented), don't let Syracuse without visiting this place unique in the world for its history, for its poetry, for the tragedy that remains on the rock, on the signs left by chisels of the prisoners. Advice to tourists: you complain if you find closed ... rather ask to pay something extra of 5 euros, but finding open!

  • Nature offers and the man has an ancient Greek quarry used as a prison, an almost surreal, with the pinnacles of rock on which grew the vegetation that make a site not to be missed. To visit not only within, from "low", but also to be seen from above, taking advantage of the Visual that you can enjoy from the nearby grand hotel Villa Politi ".

  • The Latomia was an obligatory stop of the trip in Sicily, the so-called "Grand Tour". Among the latomie of Syracuse that ancient and Capuchin is certainly the most beautiful. The link with the Friars Minor of St. Francis dates back to 1582, when the University of Syracuse gave it to the monks.
