Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage, the Duomo di Siracusa was formerly a Greek temple that dated back to the 5th century BC. The present Byzantine church dates back to the 7th century and still holds archaeological insights into its origins.

The early 20th century excavations of the place uncovered many historic artefacts (including pre-Hellenic objects) that can be seen at the Museo archeologico regionale Paolo Orsi. However, even today, a visit to the gorgeous Church is sure to send you shooting into historic times recreated by the intricate baroque elements, rustic walls, delicate work seen on the pillars and beautiful pulpits that adorn its interiors.

What is special about the church that it was stransformed into a Mosque for a short while in the 9th century and was changed to a church again in 1085. Every transformation of the place is somehow still preserved in its structure and if you look closely, you can find a seamless merge of all of its history in its architecture.

Highlights of the place include:

  • Marabitti, statue of the Virgin
  • Ancient columns of the Temple of Athena worked into the current architecture.
  • Stained glass window at the St Lucia Chapel.
