Syracuse Cathedral

Recommended
This was first a temple built in honour of Athena then transformed into a church in the 7C; it was remodelled in the Norman era, before collapsing in the earthquake of 1693. Entrusted with the reconstruction, Andrea Palma respected the old structure, based on columns. Those of the former temple remain in the right side of the building. Inside, there are numerous statues by brothers Domenico and Antonello Gagini.
