Nice historical site with some of the best preserved ancient Greek temples.
A nifty site but just mostly rubble without much explanation. Whish there was more historical context to read.
The 7th century BC ruins are located right next to the markets, and you probably only need a few minutes to admire what remains. You would barely know the significance of the attraction based on the signage around the monument. You can admire the temple from the rails erected to protect the site.
Easy to miss and walk past. It's free and a significant piece of architectural history worth seeing.
Good spot for start your ancient journey in Ortigia.
