Really special with beautiful art and laid out in a stately fashion. Tranquil too and really lovely. Well worth a visit.

The best view you get from the roof of Santa Chiara church. And of course from the bottom of the scalinata.

I don't know but you may about to enquire when you are in Sicily using Tourist information. I found church times did vary but most were open in the morning. Some in Ortigia closed at 14.00 or had short opening times to... More
