Siracusa is a place for history lovers.
Stones of Apollo’s temple witness the devotion of those who built it twenty-six centuries ago. An arabic inscription reminds us that God was worshipped here under other forms as well.
The Normans who once ruled this island are long gone. But Castello Maniace still keeps a faithful watch over the Ionian waters, and the basilica of Santa Lucia protects the remains of that Christian martyr.
From the Ancient Greek monuments to the Norman and Baroque buildings, Siracusa will take you on a journey to many pasts.
