Our group was staying close so we walked to see the Duomo. It is on a large open area and is a beautiful building. The inside is beautiful too so if you are on the island you should see this building.

This cathedral was originally a Greek Temple. You can still see the columns. The front, however, is beautifully Baroque.

We had wandered round Ortygia and eventually came to this beautiful building set in a magnificent square. Lots of tourists about as would be expected and small admission charge. Although this building is relatively new (1700's) it is built around an ancient Temple of Minerva...More

We were visiting Siracusa with friends. Our hotel was right down the street from this gorgeous cathedral. And the surrounding piazza is the place to be. We were so impressed with the architecture, both inside and out. The paintings rivaled those we saw at the...More

A Greek temple enclosed by the Normans to form a cathedral, damaged by an earthquake, a magnificent baroque facade added in the 18th century - an amazing history! We visited it with a guide and would recommend it as there is so much detail to...More

We paid the slighly annoying entrance fee of 2 Euros because we were happy to support maintaining cultural heritage. We only visted briefly, but the columns in the southern nave are just spectacular and highly original. Go and have a look!

If you are lucky enough o visit Syracuse, the Duomo should be high on your list of visits. It is an exceptionally interesting example of an ancient temple having been converted to a new religion. Visit!

One can see how the Greek architecture was incorporated into the newer architecture as opposed to taking it all down. It's worth a visit just to see the wonderful piazza where it stands.
