What a fascinating place! Built round a 5th century BC Greek temple with Byzantine, Arab, Norman and Baroque additions there's an powerful sense of history.

We were staying in an apartment right opposite, so although I don't usually bother looking in churches we thought we should give this a go, despite the 2 euro entry fee. I found it well worth every penny though - this place has so much...More

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.

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
