We thought that we had seen enough cathedrals and statues of the Virgin, but the columns imbedded in the outside wall drew us in - and how pleased we were that we did so. The Duomo is built from the Greek Temple to Athena and apart from minor changes (e.g. arches cut into the walls of the cella, and Christian... More

There are so many duomos in Italy ...this 1 is special as it has been modified by the various rulers of this great city and you an still see the remnants of the previous occupants in the still standing structure.

The Duomo shows the many layers of history of this storied isle, from ancient greek colony to baroque beauty. Fascinating and the piazza is a place to spend hours watching the world

This is an extraordinary building with an Ancient Greek temple as its base with massive columns still extant, converted to a church. After the earthquake when it was damaged a beautiful late baroque facade was added. A real gem.

Great and in a lovely setting with a warmth of colour and history, the art jewellery and statues on display are a sheer delight

This is a beautiful church which incorporates a Greek temple in its architecture. We paid for the audio tour which gave us the historical information we needed. The audio did need some revision because at one point there were two voices talking at once.

Having read other reviews & seen pictures, we didn’t go inside, so cannot really give a full overview of this church. The outside, however, is set on a large piazza and had a beautiful baroque frontage. By all accounts, that seems to be the most impressive thing about the duomo, and its certainly worth a look when walking past.

To enter the church one has to pay €2 which isn't much money. The church is nice from inside and still has its raw splendour which is very original

We finished our day in Ortigia by having dinner here. Any of the plaza restaurants are probably similar. The highlight was having a ringside seat for the passagiatta. We had families, dogs, cats all enjoying the evening with an amazing accordion and 1 string stand up bass player providing the mood music.

It must be tempting for all religious buildings in places where tourism is a major industry to charge for entrance. In Sicily the picture is mixed (the best deal being the free cathedral in Monreale with its stunning mosaics), but the duomo in Siracusa wants 2 euros at the door. The building is interesting because of its long history, and... More
