Today we head back to Sicily, to the small island town of Ortigia. While strolling around the town, we came upon this wonderful scene that just begged to be photographed. A little about Ortigia: Also called Città Vecchia (Old City), it is the historical center of the city of Syracuse and sits on the southeast coast of Sicily. 2400 years ago Ortigia formed the center of Syracuse, the most important Greek city in the entire nation.
The Piazzo del Duomo is the central point of the small city, and features the Syracuse Cathedral (duomo), the most important site in Ortigia. The cathedral facade was built in the 18th century in front of a 5th century temple (the Temple of Athena). Also of note is the Castello Maniace, a grand fort/castle which was strategically constructed at the entrance to Syracuse Bay. In addition to those sites, there are underground tunnels, numerous historical churches, tasty restaurants, shopping and guided tours galore. More information on Ortigia can be found here. Enjoy!
