Cathedral Of Syracuse Sicily
Photograph - Photography And Digital Art
The altar of the Cathedral of Syracuse on Ortygia island exudes a bright fairy lightness which highlights its Baroque decoration, in contrast to the more somber rest of the interior. The Cathedral of Syracuse (Duomo di Siracusa) is an ancient Catholic church in Syracuse, Sicily. The present church was constructed in the 7th century on the site of a 5th century Temple of Athena and the ancient Doric columns of the original temple were incorporated in the walls of the current church. The church was converted to a mosque in 878 CE then back to a Catholic church in 1085. The roof of the nave is of Normal origin dating from this time. Baroque details were incorporated during rebuilding after the 1693 earthquake. Thus, the interior combines rustic walls with Baroque details. The cathedral is included in a UNESCO World Heritage Site designated in 2005.
