Basilica St John the Evangelist

Recommended
The ruins of the basilica stand open to the skies above the crypt of St Marcus and constitute one of the most fascinating places in Syracuse. Byzantine in style, it was destroyed by the Arabs, retaken by the Normans, it then lost its roof in an earthquake. The portico in front of the facade was rebuilt using material from the 15C.
