Travel Tips for Siracusa

Great cakes, sweets and other...

by lichinga

Great cakes, sweets and other delicacies in Sicily; not to mention all those traditional ice-cream and derivates (granita, cremolata....). As I'm a chocolate-lover, I'm glad to share with you the existence of Modica's Chocolate: a superb mixture of chocolate and cinnamon giving a wonderful result. You may trace it even in the Internet, through a page of the producers herself: mrs Elvira Rocccasalva.

The Cathedral (Il Duomo;Santa Maria delle Colonne)

by hquittner

Seen from the large and long Piazza del Duomo(picture heading our intro to Siracusa), the graceful mid-18C Baroque facade (designed by Palma) of the cathedral does not indicate its interesting ancient origins.The facade itself was built after the earthquake of 1693. The free-standing statues at the base of the steps representing Sts. Peter and Paul, as well as those of the facade are by Marabitti (a popular Sicilian sculptor of the 18C). They give dramatic strength to your climb to the church platform. There several nice VT views of the facade, so instead we show the unusual N. side (our Tip), To see this aspect of the church go left to the via Minerva or if you are arriving from there just stop and look.. The original 7C cathedral incorporated the remains of a Temple of Athene(5C BC), thus preserving an ancient monument. (This is similar to the conversion of the Temple of Concordia in Agrigento where church conversion helped preserve it). Here the Greek structure was cleverly reworked into a more elaborate entity. You may not be able to identify the all of the 12 Doric columns embedded in the N. wall.Note the fluting. If you like to go "cathedral-hopping" as we do,we have also created a Travelog on this fine church.
