Basilica St John the Evangelist

Recommended
The ruins of the basilica, standing exposed to the elements above the Crypt of San Marciano, are one of the most fascinating places in Syracuse. The Byzantine basilica was destroyed by an earthquake, then retaken by the Normans. The portico in front of the façade was rebuilt using materials from the 15C.
