Chiesa Di San Giovanni Alle Catacombe - Review

The Chiesa di San Giovanni alle Catacombe dates back to the 6th century and is the place where Marciano- the first bishop of Syracuse is buried. Even though originally a strong structure with 12 Doric columns, today only the column of the central aisle stands tall.

Throughout its history, the church was renovated multiple times during the Norman age and during the 17th century after the earthquake of 1693. The façade was reconstructed and many elements were introduced to its original structure.

The courtyard of the church is a highlight and a staircase here takes you to the tomb of San Marciano. The tomb had a central altar that has now been replaced by 4 pillars that are adorned by  historic symbols of the Evangelists and Gospel inscriptions.

Other highlights include:

  • The Norman façade on the left wall of the church with a damaged arch.
  • The statue of of “St. John the Baptist”
  • 15th century elements incorporated into the design after the earthquake in the late 17th century.
  • The remains of paintings on the church walls.

Chiesa Di San Giovanni Alle Catacombe, Syracuse Reviews

  • While I'm glad I visited the catacombs, the guided tour wasn't the most fascinating. It only lasts about 15 minutes and covers the main areas very quickly. It would have been nice to have been able to spend more time looking at some of the areas such as the church and crypt but we were rushed through as another group was arriving

  • Absolutely not for handicapped visitors. The guide was angry and yelled at me for being slow. I have to be careful in these sort of places because of being nearly blind.

  • It's like an underground cemetery full of history, from the earliest days of Christianity. Bones have been removed, though, when it was used as shelter against bombing. Pics not allowed :(.

  • Very interesting, the catacombs are huge but the tour only lets you see a few of them. Photographs are not allowed.

  • There was nothing was visible, because the guide constantly forgot to beam the light on the object of the excursion, and all the time sent it to the ceiling. The guide has spoken only Italian, although it was said that he will lead the tour in Italian and English. Very unfriendly staff.
