As most of us, I have seen a Ancient Greek temples or what is left of them-empty lines of columns. This duomo is built around the Doric columns of the ancient temple of Athena (Minerva) giving these lines of columns real dimension and perspective relevant...More

You can’t fail to miss this wonderful piece of architecture. An amazing Catholic Church inside and out. Located on Ortigia island this is a must see.

The building was originally an ancient Greek temple, but was then converted into a christian church. The pillars of the original temple are still visible. The inside is not as ornate as many of the other cathedrals you'll see on Sicily, but still well worth...More

While the interior of the cathedral is a bit too, too Baroque for my taste, the fact that one of the walls is make up of Doric pillars from an ancient temple to Artemis (or was it Athina?) when Ortigia/Syracuse was a colony established by...More

This is a fascinating building to visit for its history. On the north side you can clearly see the Doric columns from the Greek Temple of Minerva, which you see again inside. The remainder is primarily 18th century so has a flourish of baroque style,...More
